Environment Canada says a cold front causing strong winds is making its way across southern Ontario Saturday morning.

Environment Canada advisories for southern and eastern Ontario and parts of northern Ontario warn that winds with gusts up to 90 kilometres per hour are expected, including in the Greater Toronto Area, London and Windsor.

Environment Canada developmental meteorologist Lucas Alexopoulos said Saturday that a peak wind gust of 96 kilometres per hour was recorded in Windsor.

He said regions on the eastern shores of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario could see sporadic gusts stronger than 90 kilometres per hour coming off the water.

Environment Canada says the winds could cause power outages and damage buildings.
