For many in Southern Ontario, this wintry wallop was the first major snowstorm of the season dumping about 15 cm of snow on Windsor, Toronto and Hamilton with 20 cm in Ottawa and 30 cm in Kingston.

Montreal could receive as much as 40 cm of snow while Quebec City can expect about 20 cm.

The storm actually originated in the American South dropping rare post-Christmas snow on cities like Dallas, Texas and Little Rock, Arkansas.

After hammering the U.S. Northeast with snow and rain, the storm is now moving into New Brunswick and Nova Scotia with snow, strong gusty winds and rain along the Atlantic coast.
