UPDATE: The wind warning has come to an end.

A wind warning is in effect for the Sunshine Coast from Saltery Bay to Powell River.

Environment Canada says strong winds that may cause damage are expected or occurring.

A compact low will track across central Vancouver Island this morning causing a short burst of strong southeasterly winds.

Ahead of the low, southeasterly winds will rise to 60 to 80 km/h.

As the low loses strength and moves further northeast late this morning, winds will ease.
