A fast-moving storm barreled through Atlantic Canada Wednesday, hitting Nova Scotia and Newfoundland the hardest.

It's part of the same system that caused a mess of roadways in southern Ontario

"The heaviest snow will fall along the south shore of Nova Scotia and the southern Burin and Avalon, with 20-25 cm expected," Weather Network meteorologist Doug Gillham says.

Snowfall warnings were issued for Nova Scotia and Newfoundland.

The snow began developing across the Maritimes from the late morning through the afternoon and is expected to end overnight.

Southern Newfoundland, in the meantime, will see the snow developing by the late evening, ending early Thursday morning.

The southern parts of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland should also prepare for blowing snow potential, with wind gusts in the range of 70-80 km/h.

The wind will feel more bitter in Newfoundland, where wind chill warnings are in effect for the northern peninsula, making it feel like -35, a repeat of the frigid temperatures that covered much of the island on Tuesday.
