The low brought heavy rain and even thundershowers to the lower Great Lakes, but temperatures were just cold enough northeast of Lake Superior to generate wet snowfall, according to a special weather statement issued by Environment Canada.
The Kapuskasing, Wawa, Timmins, Sault Ste. Marie, Kirkland Lake and Chapleau areas were all expected to see snowfall amounts of up to 10 cm, with even higher localized amounts expected Friday night into Saturday.
By early Saturday morning, Timmins had received 2 cm, Wawa 4 cm and Chapleau 9 cm.
Unseasonably cool temperatures and even snow have been big stories throughout Ontario this spring.
Meteorologists say the Pacific Ocean phenomenon called La Niņa is to blame.
