      Get ready for some gusty weather.

      That's because Environment Canada has issued a wind warning for southwestern B.C. for Sunday and Monday (November 29 and 30).

      Residents of Metro Vancouver, the Southern Gulf Islands, Sunshine Coast up to Earls Cove, and Bowen Island will experience south and southeast winds reaching 60 kilometres per hour overnight and Monday morning.

      There's a 60 percent chance of showers this evening; 15 to 25 millimetres of rain are expected later at night.

      Meanwhile, on northern Vancouver Island, wind speeds will be in the 50- to 70-kilometre per hour range this evening.

      The gusty weather is coming as a result of an intense Pacific front that could also bring alpine snow.

      B.C. Ferries is advising people to check "current conditions" on its website if they're planning to board any sailings.
