Tuesday's storm:

Much of Ontario was pelted with a winter storm on Jan. 10 with conditions ranging from blowing snow to freezing rain to regular old rain.

Across Northern Ontario, Sudbury was hit hard by blowing snow that started at around 2:30 p.m. and  is expected to continue into the evening and turn into rain overnight,

North Bay saw much of the same storm blow through, and temperatures had already reached zero by around 9:30 p.m. with light rain falling.

It was a bit warmer in Sault Ste. Marie, with temperatures sitting around 3 degrees Celsius at sundown, with a mixture of light rain and snow.

Our neighbours to the south in the Greater Toronto Area didn't have as much snow, but the same storm hit them earlier in the day.

The snow that blew through Sudbury at around 3 p.m. on Jan 10 had already covered much of the GTA at around 9 a.m. and turned to rain by around 5 p.m.
