A warm Sunday is underway in Ontario, but some people in that province and neighbouring Quebec had to deal with some snow, courtesy of the edge of the same nor'easter that is making the weekend messy for Atlantic Canada.

People in the Niagara region may have woken up to a light dusting of snow, but it's eastern Ontario and the St. Lawrence River Valley that are in for the most snow from that system.

Environment Canada issued a special weather statement for the Kingston area eastward, including the National Capital Region, warning of 5-10 cm of snow, with locally higher amounts of 15 cm possible.

No snowfall warnings were in effect Sunday morning in Ontario, but it was a different story in Quebec, with snowfall warnings covering the capital, Eastern Townships and Gaspesie regions, along with a special weather statement for the rest of the St. Lawrence Valley, including Montreal.

And forecasters are keeping a close eye on northern Ontario, where a winter storm watch is in effect for much of the northwest.

Those watches extend into Manitoba as well, including Winnipeg, but forecasters currently expect the worst snowfall to occur in northern Ontario when that system reaches the Lake Superior area Sunday night.
