Snow closes Mid-Atlantic schools, governments


WASHINGTON (AP) — Snow is closing schools and governments throughout the mid-Atlantic region again and authorities are urging motorists who do venture out to watch for a wide range of road conditions.

The federal government and the District of Columbia government are closed Monday. Maryland closed state offices until noon with liberal leave in the afternoon. Delaware closed state offices in Kent and Sussex counties and delayed opening New Castle County offices.

Transportation officials say many highways are clear, but ramps and side roads may still be slippery.

The National Weather Service reports 10 inches of snow fell at Dulles International Airport and more than 7 at Reagan National Airport, which closed its runways for several hours Monday. There was nearly 8 inches of snow at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.
