A 992 millibar low over Northern Haida Gwaii this morning will move

Entrance.  A large area of gale force westerlies will follow the low
off the west coast of Haida Gwaii. Winds will ease below gale

On Thursday, a ridge of high pressure will build over the offshore
waters and will cause winds to veer to moderate to strong northwest
over the South Coast while winds remain mostly light to moderate
elsewhere.
