According to Environment Canada, a strong cold front will approach B.C.'s South Coast Tuesday evening.

Winds of between 70 and 90 kilometres per hour are forecast for the city of Vancouver, the North Shore and Metro Vancouver's southeast and southwest, including Surrey, Langley, Richmond and Delta.

Just one day after powerful winds hit Vancouver Island, Greater Victoria and the Southern Gulf Islands are once again under a wind warning.

Strong winds cause damage or toss loose objects, the weather agency said.

The weather agency says areas along the exposed coast and Howe Sound will bear the brunt of the gusts, which are expected to ease overnight.

A rain and a wind warning was issued for Metro Vancouver Nov. 14.

At the same time, parts of the province fall under Environment Canada rainfall warnings.

Meanwhile, a rainfall warning has been issued for communities along the North Shore from West Vancouver to Maple Ridge, as well as Howe Sound and East Vancouver Island. The winds were brought in by an intense Pacific low pressure system that moved inland starting in the morning.
