Tie down the trampoline and bring in your patio furniture because things are about to get windy on the west coast.

Environment Canada has issued a wind warning that extends from Port aux Basques right on up to Port Saunders and the Straits.

Strong southeasterly winds gusting up to 110 kilometres per hour are expected to develop tonight and subside early Tuesday morning as winds shift to become strong southwesterly.

Parts of the coast can expect gusty winds to continue through the day on Tuesday, possibly reaching warning criteria on the Northern Peninsula.

Environment Canada says the winds could cause damage to roof shingles and windows and loose objects may be tossed about.
