October 31, 2010 — October ends with snowfall in parts of Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick.

Right before Hallowe'en, Ottawa and Montreal both got their first snowfall accumulations of the season.

In the nation's capital, where a record-breaking 7.4 cm of snow fell, snowmen joined the holiday decorations on front lawns.

The snowfall was not as intense in Montreal, where only a couple of centimetres of the white stuff coated the ground. But southern Quebec's Eastern Townships looked like a picture-perfect Christmas postcard scene.

“Is this a sign that you should think about making an appointment for your winter tires?” asks Patrick Cool, a meteorologist at The Weather Network.

“Another push of cold air will be coming next weekend along with a risk of more snow flurries across these same areas.”

Places in northern Ontario, like Sudbury and North Bay, saw snow on Saturday. Flakes also reached into southern Ontario and were spotted as far south as Vaughan, north of Toronto.

Snow also swept into New Brunswick, where there was a risk of flurries on Sunday night across a wide swath of the province, including Moncton and Fredericton.
