WASHINGTON — The mid-Atlantic region is waking up to a mix of rain and snow.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory in the region and expected the wintry mix to change over to snow after daybreak. Snow is expected to fall occasionally during midday hours with rain mixing in during the afternoon south of Baltimore. There may be a burst of snow in the evening.
The weather service is forecasting less than an inch of snowfall in the Washington area, but 3 to 6 inches in the Baltimore area and northern Maryland.
Schools in the region are closed or opening late. The federal government is open, but workers can telecommute or take leave. Metro says bus and rail service and MetroAccess are operating on a regular schedule.
