Another winter storm is hanging over the US Northeast, threatening heavy snowfall, just one week after much of the Northeast was buried by Winter Storm Juno.

The latest storm, dubbed Linus, has already blanketed the Midwest, bringing Detroit its third-worst snowstorm on record and leaving Chicago to deal with the fifth-heaviest snowstorm it’s ever seen.

New England is expected to get the worst of the storm, just as it did with Juno. The Weather Channel reports that some parts of the region could see up to 18 inches, especially from northern Massachusetts to southern Maine.

New York again looks set to miss out on most of the snow accumulation, but the city is getting rain on Monday and the expected temperature drop in the later hours could cause issues with freezing.

As the storm bears down on the Northeast, Linus leaves behind Chicago, which got 19 inches of snow, and Detroit, which got almost 17 inches of snow in the storm.
