Snow falls in Denver, Colorado, USA, 09 April 2013 (AP)
A dynamic storm system has produced a blizzard, severe storms with large hail and crazy temperature swings from North Dakota to Texas.
Heavy snow fell in many areas with the U.S. National Weather Service recording snowfall records being broken in 44 cities with some parts of Nebraska receiving as much as 60 cm.
A dramatic drop in temperature also occurred with Abilene, Texas falling from a scorching 33 C to near freezing in less than 8 hours from last night to early today.
The same storm system is moving into Ontario tomorrow and is expected to bring heavy rain and snow.
