WASHINGTON (AP) The National Weather Service says more snow is expected in the area tomorrow. Tomorrow evening, the chance of snow was 30 percent, the same as for Saturday morning.

WASHINGTON (AP) The largest snowfall so far in the Mid-Atlantic region this season has left hundreds of thousands of customers without power. Early in the day some 300,00 customers in the Washington region were without power, including D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray, but that number dropped as the day went on.

WASHINGTON (AP) The government official who let workers leave two hours early yesterday is defending his decision. Office of Personnel Management Director John Berry faced criticism for his decision to send 300,000 federal employees in the Washington region home two hours early and unleashing them into the teeth of a ferocious late afternoon snowstorm.
