People living between southern Ontario and northern Nova Scotia were being urged to avoid non-essential travel as a winter storm carried a mix of snow, freezing rain and ice pellets through Eastern Canada.
Winter storm warnings were in place for parts of five provinces Tuesday, due to the combination of heavy precipitation and high winds in the forecast.
The storm began to hit southwestern Ontario early Tuesday morning. Temperatures there were expected to be just warm enough for the region to avoid the snowfall totals forecast for other parts of the province.
