About 30 centimetres, or a foot, of snow fell in the southeast on Wednesday, but it appears the worst is over.

Environment and Climate Change Canada continues to have a winter storm warning in effect, with a Colorado Low still hanging above the region.

"We are expecting about another five centimetres today (Thursday) and that will continue into tonight with another two, so it will slowly be easing up through the day and evening, but finally is going to pull out near midday tomorrow," said Environment Canada Meteorologist Chris Stammers.

Stammers said they will likely lift the winter storm warning by Thursday afternoon. It will take some time to get close to to typical highs in the mid-teens, but the snow should melt soon.

"We're going to be kind of struggling with our daytime highs over the next couple of days, temperatures will be like near 0 or 1 degree until it does look like by early next week we'll be starting to get out back up near 10 degrees, certainly by the middle of next week. So I would think within a couple of days next week, most of the snow will be gone." 

As of 7 Thursday morning, some highways are still closed in the southeast. You can find the latest conditions and closures here.
