Tuesday, December 29, 2015, 9:05 AM - A winter storm in Ontario leaves a snowy, slushy mess behind, while taking aim at its next targets in Ottawa and Montreal.

Atlantic Canada, meanwhile, is set for its second winter storm in less than a week, while the west sees some improvement.

Here's your coast-to-coast brief.

Atlantic Canada

  • Maritimes: Heavy snow moves in mid-morning, up to 20 cm for much of Nova Scotia and southern New Brunswick. Winds 50 km/h along the coast will make for blowing snow. Southwestern Nova Scotia sees a switch to rain in the evening before returning to snow. System gone overnight into Wednesday.
  • Newfoundland: Sea-effect snow off of the Gulf of St. Lawrence with strong northwesterly winds, easing through the day.

Ontario and Quebec

  • Ontario: Southwestern Ontario and the GTA changed to rain, still mixing or freezing rain for inland areas in the morning, warming to 5-6oC by the afternoon. Ottawa to see an additional 25 cm of snow. 
  • Quebec: Winter storm warnings widespread from the Ottawa River to beyond Quebec City. Montreal may see locally 35-40 cm north fo the city, easing in the evening.

Western Canada

  • Prairies: Lingering light snows clear out of southern portions. Temperatures moderating through the week, becoming relatively mild with the slight chance of flurries in the next 36 hours.
  • British Columbia: Patchy fog in the morning, very slight chance of wet flurries in eastern Vancouver Island. Cool days ahead, but moderating in the long range.
