February 2, 2015

BOSTON (AP) — Boston schools will be closed again on Tuesday after the second snowstorm in a week is expected to drop more than a foot of new snow.

Mayor Martin Walsh said Monday afternoon that the safety of children and families is “always our top priority.” He said the new storm could bring a foot-and-a-half of snow before winding down Monday night. The city got about 2 feet of snow in a blizzard a week ago.

Walsh said crews will be working to clear all streets and schools Monday night and Tuesday.

Schools were closed three days last week.

The city also plans a Super Bowl celebration parade downtown late Tuesday morning for the New England Patriots.
