    On Sunday, snow fell across much of Wisconsin and eastern Minnesota and parts of Michigan and Indiana before heading north towards the Great Lakes region.

     

    Canada's weather service also issued warnings for communites along the  coastlines of Lake Ontario and Erie.

     

    Four people died in and around the city of Montreal over the weekend in weather-related accidents, Canadian television channel CBC reported.
