Calgary weather: Fast-moving cold front triggers wind warning
Brace yourself for 90 km/h winds in southern, central Alberta, Environment Canada warns
Strong winds are blowing into southern and central Alberta, and could be bringing a little snow with them.

Environment Canada said a strong cold front is expected to move from the north to the south across the province starting late Friday morning.

Environment Canada has issued a wind warning for many parts of central and southern Alberta and Calgarys Emergency Management Agency is asking people to secure outside property as winds are expected to exceed 90km/h in some areas.

"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.

Investigators have released images of two vehicles that may have been involved in an early morning hit and run that left a Calgary police officer seriously injured earlier this year.

It is a priority for CBC to create a website that is accessible to all Canadians including people with visual, hearing, motor and cognitive challenges.

The weather agency says a cold front will move across the province on Friday and will bring strong winds with it that could cause damage to property.
