(NEW YORK) — More snow in the northeast on Sunday night and Monday morning could create a messy commute and delays for those headed to work.

The same storm system that brought heavy snow and near-blizzard conditions from Nebraska to Pennsylvania in recent days is now expected to drop three to eight inches on the New York City area and possibly more than that in Boston, Hartford, Providence and parts of New Hampshire and Vermont.

More than 2,000 flights were cancelled for Monday, largely in Chicago; Newark, N.J.; Boston and New York. Public schools in Toledo, Ohio and Chicago will be closed Monday. New York City’s Office of Emergency Management said on Sunday night, however, that the city’s schools would be open.

Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy urged residents of his state to avoid travel during the height of the storm, ordering a delayed opening for state offices on Monday.
