Fred's interested in the weather around here now. So here is what it looks like when a wind warning is issued for the Sunshine Coast, which forms the north edge of Howe Sound. I pay special attention to these, because southeasterly wind warnings affect us, given that we are about 100 meters above sea level looking out over the water directly southeast.:
