It looked like the middle of winter in parts of northern Ontario over the weekend as a springtime snowstorm blasted though the area.
North Bay and Sudbury were among the areas hardest hit with a coating of snow.
'Snow this late in the year is not that uncommon in northern Ontario. However, it's felt out of place this year because of the unusual warm spell we've had for a couple of months before this,' says Weather Network meteorologist Rob Davis.
The same low pressure system that brought thunderstorms and windstorms to southern Ontario affected the north, but with snow.
The winds were strong enough in northern Ontario to make blowing snow a problem. Power lines were also damaged, and many households were plunged into the dark on Friday.
By Saturday afternoon, the snow had tapered off.
And the temperature has been climbing back up. Monday afternoon, temperatures will be in the double digits again.
