Boston - New England and portions of New York state awoke to a fresh blanket of snow on Monday as a storm churned across the Northeast, making for a slippery, tedious commute to start the workweek.

The National Weather Service issued winter storm warnings for central New York and the state's western Catskills, along with much of New England through early Tuesday.

Some areas of Massachusetts had about 30cm of snow before dawn, and the storm was expected to last all day Monday. The Boston area was expected to receive up to 60cm of snow through Tuesday while Hartford, Connecticut, and Providence, Rhode Island, could each get up to 30cm.

In New York, the snow stretched from Buffalo to the Hudson Valley.
