Hang onto your hats and stow away your empty garbage cans — strong winds are expected to buffet Victoria Tuesday night.

The wind is to blame for a Garry oak tree losing a branch and a slightly damaged a house on Midland Road in Oak Bay Tuesday afternoon.

Environment Canada posted a wind warning for Greater Victoria at 4 p.m. Tuesday, calling for winds of 70 km/h to sweep across the south Island.

The weather system could also bring with it a mixture of snow and rain, with snow accummulating to several centimetres at higher elevations.

The winds are expected to ease overnight.
