A brief respite from cold temperatures is here for the snowy Northeast, but that doesn't mean an end to its weather woes.

Warming temperatures accompanying a winter storm turned precipitation in many areas from snow to sleet, making sidewalks and streets in New York and Philadelphia slushy and treacherous on Sunday.

In Boston, temperatures were to climb to around 40 degrees. The warmup is a welcome change for a city that's seen 7 feet of snow.

The storm brought heavy snow to inland areas. Higher elevations in western Virginia, West Virginia and western Maryland got 10 inches or more.

The warm weather won't last, however. Sub-freezing highs will return across much of the Northeast on Monday.
