An Environment Canada map of Newfoundland and Labrador shows areas in red on the island where wind warnings have been issued for Tuesday.
Environment Canada has issued wind warnings for Tuesday for parts of Newfoundland, including the Northern Peninsula, the Terra Nova area, Bonavista, Clarenville and the Avalon Peninsula.

Strong southerly winds will develop over the Avalon Tuesday morning and spread northwestward throughout the day with gusts of up to 100 kms an hour expected along parts of the coast.
Environment Canada says potentially damaging winds are expected and is advising people to monitor weather conditions and check for updated statements.
