WASHINGTON (AP) — The federal government says its offices in the Washington area will be closed Tuesday due to the winter storm bearing down on the mid-Atlantic and northeastern U.S.

The Office of Personnel Management says non-emergency personnel in and around the District of Columbia are granted excused absences for the day.

Emergency employees and telework-ready employees are expected to work.

The National Weather Service predicts Washington could get between 4 and 8 inches of snow Tuesday, with higher amounts north of the nation's capital.
