Winter storm leaves tough commute in Ontario as it pushes into Quebec

Environment Canada says accumulations near the shore of Lake Ontario could be less than five centimetres, and in some areas the snow on the ground turned to slush.

There were numerous collisions and flight cancellations and delays blamed on the system that began moving into the region Monday afternoon.

Environment Canada has issued winter storm warnings for parts of southern Quebec, forecasting 25 to 40 centimetres of snow could fall today and overnight into Wednesday. The agency is also warning of ice pellets and blowing snow.

In Atlantic Canada, Environment Canada says snow and ice pellets are expected today in western Nova Scotia, and snow in parts of southern New Brunswick.

That follows a storm Sunday that dumped up to 18 centimetres of snow on some areas of the Maritime provinces.
