    The same storm system that has been affecting eastern Canada will continue to bring stormy weather to Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic provinces through Friday. 

    Wind, dropping temperatures and snow squalls will be the main concern, with parts of northern Ontario receiving upwards of 20 cm of snow by the time all is said and done.  

    On Wednesday, Environment Canada issued winter storm warnings across the region, with the potential for hazardous winter driving conditions.

    Strong winds and blowing snow could make for a tricky commute, reducing visibility to as little as 250 metres at time.  

    The Ontario Provincial Police closed several highways in the Sudbury and North Bay areas Wednesday morning due to freezing rain that contributed to numerous conditions.
