CBC meteorologist Ryan Snoddon took part in a video challenge with a cause that has taken over social media over the last week.

Celebrities and regular folk alike have been posting videos of their ALS ice bucket challenge to draw awareness to the illness.

On Tuesday's Here and Now, Snoddon was doused with a bucket of ice-cold water in response to a challenge he received from some friends.

"Oh man, that was so much colder than I thought it was going to be," said a sodden Snoddon.

Snoddon extended the challenge to This Hour Has 22 Minutes star Mark Critch and CBC News Network's Jay Scotland.
