The Office of Personnel Management has announced that the federal agencies will be open for business Wednesday morning on a two-hour delay. This comes after a winter storm dumped several inches of snow on the D.C. region during the day on Tuesday.
The OPM is also allowing for unscheduled leave and telework.
But while federal workers will have to show up to work, many students will not. Schools across the area have already announced closures for Wednesday, including the District, Alexandria, Fairfax County, Montgomery County, Prince George's County and many more. Our partners at NBCWashington have the full list of school closures.
There will also be changes to the normal Metro schedule. Metrorail will be operating as normal, but bus services will be on snow emergency routing as crews work overnight to keep the roads clear of snow.
Additional snow may fall before Tuesday night is over, but the storm will have moved out of the region by Wednesday morning, according to the National Weather Service. Wednesday will be frigid, with wind chill values as low as -11 degrees.
