Environment Canada said a strong cold front is expected to move from the north to the south across the province starting late Friday morning.
"Winds will begin to gust out of the northwest in excess of 90 km/h. Winds are expected to ease late this afternoon into the early evening hours," the agency said in a wind weather warning.
Winds warnings are issued when there is a significant risk of damaging winds. Environment Canada warned drivers should be prepared to adjust to changing weather conditions.
