Many eastern Canadians got their first true taste of winter early Monday as a storm spread snow, sleet and freezing rain from central Ontario to southern Quebec.
Widespread snowfall of 15-30 cm by Tuesday was forecast for a wide swathe of Quebec and Labrador.
Montrealers arose to several centimeters of new snow, capped by a layer of glaze. Forecasters warned of a slow morning commute, even though the temperature crept above freezing.
In nearby Ottawa, residents awoke to freezing rain, which also glazed over an accumulation of snow.
Snow spread down the St. Lawrence Valley, dusting Quebec City by daybreak. The city was bracing for up to 15 cm of snow, topped with sleet and freezing rain.
Snow also was also getting underway in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, where prospects were also for a switchover to sleet, ice and rain across the Maritime provinces.
Meanwhile, in spite of a little sleet and freezing rain at the outset, residents of Toronto and southern Ontario's populous "Golden Horseshoe," were spared any lasting wintry weather. Instead, a plain cold rain dominated.
The culprit in the wintry weather was a storm cutting across the Great Lakes from the midwestern U.S. The storm dumped up to 30 cm of snow in Minnesota and South Dakota, shutting at least one major highway on Sunday.
The Canadian share of the storm's heavy snow was being directed north of the major cities, with up to 30 cm slated for central and northeastern Quebec.
