The risk for the strongest gusts are in the early evening across 100 Mile, South Thompson, Nicola, Shuswap and North and Central Okanagan districts, with winds are expected to ease through the evening.

Meanwhile, a snowfall warning remains in effect for a section of the Coquihalla between Hope and Merritt, with 15 centimetres of snow in the forecast.
