SEVERE GUSTY WINDS ALONG AND BEHIND A COLD FRONT.

A STORM SYSTEM IS MOVING ACROSS NORTHEASTERN ONTARIO WITH A FAST-MOVING COLD FRONT DRAPING SOUTHWARDS FROM IT. THE RAIN AND UNSEASONABLY MILD TEMPERATURES ARE COMING TO AN ABRUPT END WITH THE PASSAGE OF THIS FRONT AS IT ROARS ACROSS EASTERN ONTARIO AT SPEEDS OF 100 KM/H. WIDESPREAD WIND GUSTS OF 90 OR 100 KM/H ARE OCCURRING ALONG THE FRONT AS IT SWEEPS ACROSS THE LOWER GREAT LAKES. SIMILAR CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED FOR ALL OF EASTERN ONTARIO BY EARLY AFTERNOON AS THE COLD FRONT RACES ACROSS THAT REGION. WINDS IN EXCESS OF WARNING CRITERIA WILL LAST FOR A FEW HOURS BEHIND THE FRONT AND THEN EASE SLIGHTLY BUT WILL STILL REMAIN QUITE STRONG FOR MOST OF THE AFTERNOON. THESE WINDS ARE CAPABLE OF FALLING TREES AND BRINGING DOWN HYDRO LINES AS WELL AS LOCAL DAMAGE TO SOME STRUCTURES. ENVIRONMENT CANADA CONTINUES TO CLOSELY MONITOR THIS SITUATION. PLEASE REFER TO THE LATEST PUBLIC FORECASTS FOR FURTHER DETAILS.
