WASHINGTON — Federal employees can take unscheduled leave or work from home because of snow expected in the Washington region.
The U.S. Office of Personnel Management made that announcement for federal workers early Wednesday.
The National Weather Service says snow is likely Wednesday evening in Washington, but little to no accumulation is expected. A transportation official says crews will be treating major roadways so snow is less likely to stick. Traffic signals also are being changed to rush hour timing early to allow traffic to get out of the city more quickly.
North of the city, in Montgomery County, accumulations of about an inch are projected.
Snow is also expected in Baltimore. Accumulations of around an inch are projected. Transportation officials have also pre-treated roads in advance of the expected snow.
