EC Issues Special Weather Statement With Damaging Wind Gusts Possible Friday.

Wind gusts up to 100 km/h will be possible.

TimeWarp which is essentially a hyperlapse mode and SuperPhoto for built-in HDR photos are also available only in the Black. While it has some stabilisation functionality, it isn't the 3-axis HyperSmooth version that's debuting on the Hero 7 Black.

Environment Canada said "strong winds" are expected to develop this afternoon and early evening, with higher wind gusts likely in thunderstorms. These strong winds are the result of a cold front that will move through the area late in the afternoon or early in the evening. To report severe weather, send an email to ONstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.

Strong winds that may cause damage are expected or occurring. Debris and loose objects could be sent airborne by the gusts, the agency warned.

More showers or thunderstorms end in the evening as southwesterly winds at 40 km/h gusting to 70 switch to a northwesterly breeze at 20 km/h after midnight. "Remember, severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes". Winds will then diminish overnight. Be prepared for severe weather.

The most blustery gales will happen in thunderstorms as a cold front tracks over Southwestern Ontario, the national weather agency says. "Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors!"
