En­vi­ron­ment Canada has is­sued a wind warn­ing for P.E.I stat­ing winds gust­ing to 90 km/h this morn­ing are ex­pected and Strait Cross­ing Inc. says wind con­di­tions may cause ve­hi­cle re­stric­tions on the bridge un­til 10 a.m. to­day.

“An in­tense trough of low pres­sure will cross Prince Ed­ward Is­land this morn­ing. Strong south­east­erly winds gust­ing to 90 km/h will de­velop ahead of the trough then di­min­ish as it passes,” said En­vi­ron­ment Canada in a spe­cial weather alert is­sued Sun­day.

The fore­cast says winds will be south­east 60 km/h gust­ing to 90 km/h be­com­ing south­west 30 km/h gust­ing to 50 km/h near noon. There will also be ap­prox­i­mately 15 mil­lime­tres of rain this morn­ing.

It says dam­age to build­ings such as roof shin­gles and win­dows may oc­cur. Loose ob­jects may be tossed by the wind and cause in­jury or dam­age.
