In addition to the heavy snow, strong wind gusts were reported.
The powerful winds, combined with freshly fallen snow, generated blowing snow and reduced visibilities.
In the Maritimes, poor driving conditions early Wednesday resulted in a handful of school closures in Nova Scotia.
"New Brunswick saw snow from this system, however they came out of this largely unscathed," says Monica Vaswani, a meteorologist at The Weather Network.
The snow tapered to flurries late Wednesday night and ended by the early morning hours on Thursday.
