Across the region, jurisdictions and government agencies are bracing for Wednesday afternoon's expected snow storm.

As of 1 p.m. the federal government says its employees can leave two hours early Wednesday -- and many school systems in northern Virginia and Maryland chose to stay closed. Others, such as Arlington County and the city of Alexandria are letting students out early –- that's also the case in Maryland's Calvert and Charles counties.

In the District, schools will remain open, but all evening classes and athletic events have been cancelled.

Forecasters say the heaviest snow will fall between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tuesday –- right in the heart of the afternoon commute.
