Strait of GeorgiaIssued 00:53 AM PDT 19 August 2022 Potential for thunderstorms and strong to gale force outflow winds
Timeframe: Friday morning through early Friday afternoon.
Threats: Risk of thunderstorms. Gale force outflow winds exiting mainland inlets.
Locations: Strait of Georgia and areas in the vicinity of the mainland inlets.
Remarks: An upper level disturbance is forecast to cross the south coast on Friday morning. This disturbance will carry the risk of thunderstorms, capable of producing gusty winds for waters of the inner south coast. As this system moves inland, there is potential for the development of gale force outflow winds exiting mainland inlets and pushing across the Strait.
At this time, confidence in the occurrence of this event is low, however it would be advisable for the marine community to be prepared in the event that this scenario takes place.
