Ana is no longer officially a hurricane, or even a tropical storm, but its remnants will still pack a punch when they hit the West Coast later on Monday.

Environment Canada is warning southeast winds are expected to reach speeds of up to 70 km/h tonight mainly over exposed coastal areas north of Nanaimo and Sechelt, and up to 90 km/h over Haida Gwaii and the Central Coast

"There will likely be heavy rainfall associated with the system and rainfall amounts of 50 to 75 mm are possible for tonight into Tuesday," said the warning.

Winds will then gradually ease through Tuesday morning.
