Hi guys our house faces northwest in whitby on a hill. I am just wondering because we have large windows facing the wind, is the wind going to be bad enough to break windows as met service are saying damaging winds. I just want to be prepared and are considering taping them. Have you any thoughts.

Hi there

Winds upwards of 80 to 100kph could be in store for you this Tuesday / Wednesday. Gusting 120kph is possible.

I’d suggest you contact the people who built your home for further information in regards to whether the wind speeds that I’ve mentioned above could cause you issues 🙂

Thanks for writing in.
