Boston Mayor Marty Walsh says the city will postpone a planned victory parade for the Patriots through downtown until Wednesday morning while local residents dig out from the latest snowstorm to hit the area.

The parade had been scheduled for Tuesday before more than a foot of fresh snow fell on the Boston area, making commutes treacherous. The National Weather Service says Boston has seen a record 34.2 inches of snow over seven days.

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.
