Snow moves east

Snow in Kenora, ON, 05 October 2012 (TWN)

The snow that fell in British Columbia and Alberta earlier this week has moved east giving southern Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario quite a dumping.

While Winnipeg escaped the worst of the snowstorm, areas to the south and east got hit hard with as much as 30 cm of snow reported.

The heavy, wet snow brought down trees, many of which still have leaves, and power lines leaving thousands without electricity.

Environment Canada says moisture from the south collided with Arctic air from the north bringing the region an early taste of winter.
