Some schools are closing and air traffic is disrupted in Ohio, the Mid-Atlantic and the Northeast as another winter storm bears down on the eastern U.S., only a day after temperatures soared into the 50s.

The National Weather Service says the storm could bring up to 8 inches of snow Monday to Philadelphia and New York, along with temperatures in the 30s.

The snowstorm is making travel difficult for football fans trying to leave the New York area after Sunday's Super Bowl.

The flight-tracking website FlightAware reports about 1,300 delayed flights and 1,300 canceled flights nationwide in cities including Philadelphia, Newark, N.J., and New York.

Inbound flights to Newark and Philadelphia are delayed three to four hours because of snow and ice.

Schools closings are reported in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
