PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A storm that crept across the country bringing snow, ice and miserable road conditions is heading toward New England as more wintry weather was expected to persist in making it hard on air travelers.

Officials with online air traffic site Flightaware.com say more than 1,000 flights are already canceled for Monday following days of icy, snowy weather from Texas to the East Coast.

A winter storm warning is in effect for Baltimore and Washington, D.C., where up to a quarter inch of ice could accumulate.

Heavy snow fell Sunday in the Mid-Atlantic, with more than 8 inches reported in Philadelphia and a foot in nearby Newark.

National Weather Service meteorologist Greg Heavener says icy precipitation could affect travel through the northeast corridor well into Monday.
