EC Issues Special Weather Statement With Damaging Wind Gusts Possible Friday.

Westerly winds with gusts of 70 to 90 km/h are forecast to develop in association with a frontal passage Friday.

Temperatures in Toronto will be scorching for the last day of summer, expected to reach a daytime high of 29 C - although it will feel more like 37 C - but will dip down to the single digits in the evening, with a low of 8 C.

While it will feel like 40, a special weather statement is in effect for Mississauga and Brampton today, September 21, warning of winds that could hit 80 kilometres per hour.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada.

The winds have the potential to cause damage to buildings, down trees and blow vehicles off the roads, Environment Canada said. To report severe weather, send an email to or tweet reports using #ONStorm. Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. Debris and loose objects could be sent airborne by the gusts, the agency warned.

Forecasters say conditions are favourable for the development of risky thunderstorms that could produce damaging wind gusts, heavy rain, and hail. "Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors!"

The Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management recommends that you take cover immediately if threatening weather approaches.

Northwest gusts between 60 and 70 kilometres per hour are also coming this evening after the cold front passes. Winds will then diminish overnight, Environment Canada said.

Wind warnings are issued when there is a significant risk of damaging winds.
