Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Toronto today, as strong winds are expected to last until this evening.

According to the weather agency, strong winds of 70 to 80 km/h are expected to occur today in the wake of a sharp arctic cold front that blasted across the region last night. Environment Canada says the winds will be strong enough to cause isolated power outages and they will slowly diminish by this evening.

So, bundle up, hold on to your hats, and hope that you don’t get hit with a power outage.
