'Vigorous' winds coming

Hold on to your hat! A wind storm is headed our way.

A vigorous cold front will bring gusty winds to the entire Okanagan on Friday.

Environment Canada issued a special weather statement for Kelowna, Vernon and Penticton at 11:40 a.m., warning residents to prepare.

“Recreational boaters are encouraged to re-visit their boating plans for Friday afternoon and evening,” said the statement.

Residents should be prepared for strong and gusty winds.

“Strong southwest winds with gusts up to 60 km/h are expected ahead of the front on Friday afternoon,” said the statement.

On Friday evening, northerly winds with gusts up to 70 km/h or more are anticipated.

Boaters should also consider anchorages or mooring protected from westerly and northerly winds.
