The second major storm in less than a week pummeled residents from New York City to Boston with snow, freezing rain and gusty winds. Weather conditions were a factor in at least 10 deaths, including some in the Midwest where the storm hit heavily on Sunday into Monday.

Boston, already blanketed by 2 feet (60 cm) of snow from a blizzard last week and predicted to get a further foot, set a record for the snowiest seven-day period in the city's history. The 34.2 inches (87 cm) measured by 1 pm on Monday surpassed the 31.2 inches (79 cm) set in January 1996.

Deep snow prompted Mayor Marty Walsh to postpone by one day until Wednesday the parade to celebrate the New England Patriots' 28-24 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Sunday's Super Bowl.

Hundreds of flights were canceled at Boston's Logan International Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey, New York's LaGuardia airport and Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, according to Flightaware.com.
               
The National Weather Service (NWS) forecast the storm would lift on Monday night and that it would be sunny in Boston on Tuesday.

Weather conditions contributed to at least 10 deaths, including a woman struck and killed by a snowplow in a Boston suburb and the death of an overnight university dining hall worker in Connecticut.

Four people were killed in highway crashes in New York and Indiana, there was a snowmobile fatality in Michigan, and three died while clearing snow in Wisconsin, according to officials and local media reports.
