Environment Canada is warning that some parts of southwestern Ontario battered by a record-setting weekend snowstorm could see strong winds this morning and into the afternoon.

More than a meter of snow has fallen on parts of the Bruce Peninsula since a snowstorm began Thursday night.

Now, the agency says the area could see strong winds gushing up to 80 kilometers an hour, resulting in possible isolated power outages.

About 53 centimetres of snow fell in Wiarton on Sunday alone, breaking the area’s single-day snowfall record that has stood since 1982.

Envionrment Canada is warning that the areas around Niagara and Kingston could also see strong winds after enduring the weekend snowstorm.

Aside from the wind, the agency says the forecast looks relatively calm over the next few days.
