Environment Canada has issued a wind warning for much of southern Saskatchewan, including the southeast.

"There is a weather system on the way," explained Terri Laing, Regional Meteorologist for Environment Canada. "It looks like it's going to start moving into the province looks like late on the day on Tuesday. So it'll be another nice day on Tuesday but there's going to be quite a wind associated with this particular weather system, but there won't be much in the way of precipitation."

An intense low pressure system is expected to move through the region, bringing with it very strong winds. Gusts upwards of 90 to 100 km/h are expected beginning this afternoon. There could even be gusts exceeding 110 km/h in some areas.

"Looks like Wednesday in the morning the winds are really going to come up across the south so it looks like Wednesday will be quite a windy day and we'll see a drop in temperature with Tuesday highs around 21, highs dropping to 12 on Wednesday with quite strong winds. Looks like it's going to bring quite a bit of wind particularity across the northern grain-belt."

"Towards the end of the week, it looks like things are going to rebound again with another ridge of high pressure moving in."

Damage to buildings, such as roof shingles and windows is possible. The high winds may also toss around loose objects, and cause tree branches to be damaged.
