The Washington area woke up to a light covering of snow, and some snow still falling this morning, which will cause a difficult commute this morning.
Federal agencies are open, but employees have the option to take unscheduled leave or unscheduled telework, according to the office of Personnel Management.

The Virginia Railway Express is operating on a full schedule, but the passenger rail service is urging commuters to exercise caution as crews clean and de-ice platforms. A problem on the Fredericksburg line is causing 30 minute delays; updates are being posted on VRE's Twitter feed.

The snow is expected to taper off this morning, although temperatures are not expected to go above freezing. Another snow event — this one with more accumulation — is possible for tomorrow afternoon and evening, according to weather reports.
