Weather alert for Leeds-Grenville: Gusty wind Sunday

BROCKVILLE – A sharp cold front will be moving into the region Sunday and it will really kick up the wind.

Environment Canada issued a special weather statement Saturday about a low pressure system from Texas moving into the province.

Communities along the St. Lawrence River will see strong southwesterly winds up to 80 kilometers an hour.

The forecast for Leeds-Grenville is calling for sustained wind of 50 kilometers an hour, gusting to 70 kilometers an hour at times.

“These winds will be strong enough to possibly cause some minor power outages and will make driving difficult especially on roads exposed to strong cross winds,” the agency said.

The temperature in Leeds-Grenville will fall to plus one in the afternoon and then to a chilly minus 10 overnight, heading into the start of the workweek.

We can count ourselves lucky in some respects as other parts of the province — particularly west of Algonquin Park, northwest of Barrie, the Bruce Peninsula and some parts of southwestern Ontario – can expect their first significant snowfall of varying amounts up to 15 centimeters.
