Southeast winds are expected to gradually strengthen throughout Friday, particularly for areas near Surrey, Langley and into Abbotsford. Late in the evening winds should briefly reach 70 kilometres per hour before moving southerly.

Winds are expected to shift early Saturday when areas near Juan de Fuca Strait could again experience strong winds.

As the storm moves through the region, up to 15 centimetres of snow is expected to fall Friday evening.
