BOSTON, March 21 (UPI) -- As much as eight inches of heavy, wet snow is expected to fall over parts of Boston late Sunday into early Monday as a Spring snowstorm could make for a very messy commute across much of the Northeast, including New York and Philadelphia.

The low pressure system sitting just off the Mid-Atlantic Coast is expected to move northward, dumping snow in the Central Appalachians Sunday night and creating a lot of slush across the East Coast on Monday and into the early hours of Tuesday.

Boston could see up to eight inches of snow in the suburbs. Cape Cod could get close to a foot of snow. Boston schools will be closed Monday, as well as schools in Providence R.I. in anticipation of the weather.

New York City could get up to three inches, with slight more possible on Long Island.

"We're urging New Yorkers to allow for extra travel time, drive slowly and exercise caution when walking or biking, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a statement.

Philadelphia will get an inch as of snow as well, with as much as four inches possible Monday along the Jersey shore.

But spring-appropriate weather will likely bounce back quickly with lower 50s expected in Boston and possible 60s in New York by Wednesday.
