Millions of Americans were under winter weather advisories Monday and dealing with a second helping of spring snow as crews worked to dig out from the weekend's deadly storm.

By Monday afternoon, more than half a foot of snow had fallen in parts of New York, and much of New England could pick up 3 inches by night, according to Weather.com.

Slick roads in Northampton, Massachusetts, resulted in five accidents before noon, leaving three people hurt, police said.

The fresh snow fell on tops of the 6 inches that had already accumulated in parts of Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island on Sunday, while heavy winds battered swaths of the country.

The National Weather Service warned Monday that an early spring "Arctic airmass" had settled over the Northeast, with winds expected to subside but cold temperatures to remain.

New York City wasn't getting the snow that was originally predicted, but unseasonable cold paired with rain led to the postponement of the Yankees' opening day.

The Weather Channel reported that winds will be gusty but are not expected to be as strong as the whipping over the weekend.

The deadly winds that lashed the Midwest and Northeast over the weekend left two people dead and injured at least nine others as trees, houses and signs succumbed to the gusts.

A Massachusetts couple killed when a tree fell on their car was identified by the Abington Police Department Sunday night as Manuela Teixeira, 51, and Franklin Teixeira, 49. Abington Fire Chief John Nutall said the tree that crushed their car appeared to be rotted at the base, making it vulnerable against winds that topped 60 mph.

The couple had one son and owned a Dunkin Donuts, according to NBC affiliate WHDH. "They are two of the most generous, sweet, caring people you'll ever meet," former employee Stephanie Roy told the station. "They treat their employees like gold."

The snow is expected to turn to rain by evening, the National Weather Service said. Still, below-average cold is expected to persist through the end of week.
