Here we blow again.

Another wind storm that has cancelled ferry sailings.

Stormy weather along the southern B.C. coast is causing disruptions to several ferry routes.

Environment Canada has put a wind warning into effect, predicting gusts of between 60 and 90 km/h throughout this morning. As much as 25 mm of rain could fall in parts of the Lower Mainland, with the heaviest rainfall expected to hit the North Shore.

The heavy wind is causing problems for ferry traffic.

As of 10 a.m. this morning, BC Ferries reported the 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. sailings on the Vancouver (Tsawwassen)-Victoria (Swartz Bay) route have been cancelled.

BC Ferries also advised passengers the Victoria (Swartz Bay)-Vancouver (Tsawwassen) sailings at noon and 4 p.m. (from Victoria) have been cancelled, as well as the return sailings at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. (from Vancouver), because the Coastal Celebration is operating on another route in place of the Queen of Coquitlam.

On the Horseshoe Bay to Departure Bay route, adverse weather forced the cancellation of the 10:30 a.m. sailings and the 12:30 p.m. sailings.

The 10:15 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. sailings between Tsawwassen and Nanaimo's Duke Point) were also cancelled because of the weather.

Earlier this morning, sailings from Vancouver Island (Campbell River) to Quadra Island (Quathiaski Cove) were also cancelled until further notice.

Deborah Marshall, spokeswoman for BC Ferries, said the Comox (Little River)-Powell River (Westview) sailings at 10 a.m. (from Comox), and 12:15 p.m. (from Powell River) have also been cancelled due to the nasty weather.

Winds should ease to between 40 and 60 km/h by this afternoon, according to Environment Canada's forecast.

The ugly weather should give way to more pleasant conditions tomorrow, with a mix of sun and cloud expected Friday, with a 60 per cent chance of showers tomorrow evening.

Rain is expected throughout the weekend and into next week with temperatures ranging between lows of 4 degrees and highs of 10.

After yesterday's wind storm that cancelled numerous BC Ferries sailings and knocked out power around the Lower Mainland, some sun and nicer weather Friday until another storm front rolls in late Friday/early Saturday.

Environment Canada is predicting a bit of a break Friday from the miserable wind and rain that plagued the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island Thursday.

John McIntyre of Environment Canada predicted mainly sunny conditions Friday.

It’s not all good news, though.

“There’s another strong front coming in Friday night or early Saturday morning,” said McIntyre. “That’s going to bring rain and wind again.”

It will be warmer with temperatures that could reach double digits.

Thursday’s wind led to numerous ferry cancellations and some power outages. There was also the rain, which was being driving sideways by the wind.

But it really wasn’t all that unusual for McIntyre.

“November is very interesting month — weather wise,” said McIntyre whos said normal rainfall for November in the Lower Mainland is 185 millilitres.

“It’s normally the rainiest month of the year,” he said.

Thursday’s winds reached 100 kilometres per hour on the central coast, with gusts up to 90 kmh on the inner south coast. While not a record, the wind played havoc with ferries.

Thursday began with the cancellation of the first four sailings on the Powell River to Comox route. The ferry from Campbell River to Quadra Island made its first two sailings but was then forced to tie up until the winds subsided.

With the wind moving southwards, the major routes between the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island were affected, with cancellations of the 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. sailings from Swartz Bay and Tsawwassen.

There were further cancellations on southern ferry routes through the afternoon.

The bad conditions extended all the way up the B.C. coast as the Northern Expedition was held in its Prince Rupert dock because of severe weather in Hecate Strait.

B.C. Ferries was already dealing with the cancellation of four runs, Thursday on the Tsawwassen to Swartz Bay because of last week’s crash of the Queen of Coquitlam in Departure Bay. The ship is expected to return to service on Friday.

Also under siege from the weather was electric service.

By the afternoon, there were, 4,877 customers without power in Richmond just south of Granville Avenue.

Northern Vancouver Island was hit with 18 outages affecting 4,753 customers. Worst affected was Campbell River with more than 3,200 customers affected.

Thursday’s wind warning for Metro Vancouver was supposed to be lifted around suppertime.

Vancouver city crews were out clearing drains, and because of the heavy rainfall, residents were being asked to remove leaves from the street’s gutters to prevent flooding.

Anyone seeing flooding or traffic light problems in Vancouver is asked to call 311 or 604-873-7000.

Crazy winds here in Southern Alberta yesterday. I live just south of Calgary and our street was littered with shingles and debris coming off all the houses. Here's a small set of photos from the damage in Calgary yesterday:

I heard that North Surrey is without power...

My fence fell apart (the whole thing went down).

I guess that the wind must be stronger in the Morgan Creek area...

* Time to fix it (on the weekend).
