BOSTON - The Latest on the snowstorm impacting the northeastern U.S. (all times local):

1:15 p.m.

Temperatures are warming, the sun is peeking out and snow is starting to melt after a large snowstorm closed schools and slowed the morning commute throughout the northeastern U.S.

But National Weather Service meteorologist Bryce Williams warns that temperatures will plunge below freezing overnight Monday. He says that raises the risk of dangerously icy conditions.

Williams also says more snow could be on the way Friday or Saturday for the Boston-area. That storm is still too early to predict, but he says it shouldn't be as significant as the most recent one, which is the largest that Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts has seen this year.

The Boston region has now recorded about 26 inches (66 centimetres) of snowfall this season, still below the region's 35-inch (89-centimetre) average.

Businesses and homeowners across the northeastern U.S. are digging out after an overnight snowstorm that closed schools and slowed the morning commute.

The storm was expected to drop about 5 to 8 inches on much of the region, with northern New England expecting up to 10 inches.

Pennsylvania's department of transportation issued speed and commercial vehicle restrictions Sunday into early Monday morning. In New Jersey, Gov. Phil Murphy declared a state of emergency for all 21 counties.

In New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Sunday that schools would be closed Monday and alternate-side street parking rules would be suspended.

The storm may have contributed to the death of two teens in a single-car accident about 30 miles north of Philadelphia Sunday evening. The driver, a 17-year-old, was hospitalized.
