WASHINGTON — Federal agencies in the Washington area are expected to open on a two-hour delay because of a winter storm.

The U.S. Office of Personnel Management, which sets leave policies for 300,000 federal workers, says the government will open two hours later than usual Tuesday, but employees also can take unscheduled leave or work from home.

A winter weather advisory was expected to expire at 10 a.m. Tuesday after a winter storm left a dusting in the Washington area. Some roads are slick, and some sidewalks are covered with snow that could later turn into ice.

There were still scattered snow showers in the District on Tuesday morning. The system is expected to move out Tuesday, and Wednesday should be sunny with a high near 34.
