    Snow and blowing snow made for poor travel in Ontario after a big spring snowstorm invaded Canada from the central Appalachian region.

    An area north and west of Toronto reported whiteouts in high winds, falling snow and blowing snow as of early Tuesday morning, the CBC News website said.

    Orangeville, in Dufferin County, and some northern outskirts of Toronto picked up 10 to 20 cm (about 4 to 8 inches) of snow. Amid visibility cut to nil, drivers in Dufferin were advised to stay off the road, the CBC said.

    Snow and blowing snow also extended east to Barrie, where it made for wintry driving on busy Highway 400.
