winds impacting New Brunswick and Quebec
According to The Weather Network, the weather bomb is a sure sign that fall is upon us because this is the season when they usually happen.

That leads to strong winds that are actually similar to gusts brought on by tropical storms!
Northern New Brunswick and eastern Quebec are expected to get winds in the afternoon and evening that range from 80 km/h to 100 km/h.
Winds are forecasted to be the strongest in the Gaspé Peninsula.
