There are pros and cons to chinooks in the Foothills.

One of the negatives is the high wind blowing in over the Rocky Mountains and high speeds.

Today is one of those days as Environment Canada issued a Wind Warning just after 6 a.m.

A southwest wind is expected to gust from 50 to 70 km/h and up to 100 km/h in wind prone areas.

And one of the positives is the warm temperatures and it's supposed to warm up to +4 this afternoon.
