DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. -- The latest winter storm to hit Dutchess has veered east where blizzard conditions and up to two feet of snowfall accumulation are expected in much of New England, particularly north of Boston.

Some roads and highways across the area iced up Sunday night, causing slippery and hazardous conditions, after a storm dumped snow and sleet throughout much of the day.

A Winter Storm Warning for Dutchess expires at 7 p.m. Monday, with additional periods of snow or snow showers are expected through Monday, mainly across the higher terrain, the National Weather Service said.

While Monday will become mostly sunny in Dutchess, strong winds which could gust up to 45 miles per hour or more will mark a day in which many schools and school districts have announced delays for Monday as a result of Sunday's storm. For a rundown of school delays, click here.

The strongest winds will be from around sunrise Monday until late Monday afternoon, the National Weather Service said.

Strong winds may blow down some tree limbs and power lines. Isolated power outages are expected. Travel will be difficult at times, the weather service said.

After a cloudy start, skies will become mostly sunny with a high temperature at or around the freezing mark. But the wind-chill factor will make it feel more like it's between 15 and 20 degrees.

Tuesday will be mostly sunny, with a high near 35 and wind-chill values between 10 and 20.
