PHOTOS: Arctic coldfront slices through Ontario and Quebec
Friday, November 10, 2017, 2:26 PM - Some eastern Canadians saw their first significant snowfall of the year Thursday night into Friday, as an arctic coldfront moved across Ontario toward Quebec.
A low pressure system over the Great Lakes brought significant snowfall, accompanied by strong winds, to parts of Quebec. Northwestern locales, including Lebel-sur-Quévillon, saw at least 20 cm of snow.
Meanwhile, several cold temperature records for Nov. 10 were broken in Ontario by Friday morning. Upsala was the coldest in the province at -28.2oC, beating the previous record set in 1979. Ottawa and Toronto both broke records set in 1939.
Snowsqualls continued on Friday off of Georgian Bay and Lake Huron, beginning to ease through the afternoon.
Here are some chilling images from this early taste of winter:
