Ottawans woke up on Monday not only to a chilly temperature, but some snow as well.

Not unusually, as Rolf Campbell at Ottawa Weather Records notes. Late October is a normal time for first snowfall in Ottawa — although it always catches us offguard nonetheless.

Monday’s temperature hung around 0°C for most of the day, with a low of 0.4°C recorded at 9 a.m. Campbell suggested more snow may be on the way this week, thanks to hurricane Zeta.

Here’s a roundup of some tweets from around Ottawa as the snow made its debut.
