From the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority:

Metrorail service is expected to be limited to underground stations only on Wednesday, February 10, and there will be no Metrobus or MetroAccess service due to the heavy snowfall expected tonight (Feb. 9) and tomorrow (Feb. 10).

The Metrorail system will open on Wednesday, Feb. 10, at 5 a.m. with service limited to underground stations only. Metrobuses and MetroAccess vehicles will remain parked because of hazardous road conditions.

Metro staff will monitor conditions throughout the day and change service levels if appropriate. If the weather predictions hold true, Metro will continue efforts to clear the above-ground tracks, in an attempt to resume above-ground rail service on Thursday. Snow is forecast to be seven to 14 inches with heavy winds expected to cause heavy snowdrifts on the tracks and the region’s roadways.
