FREDERICK, Md. (AP/WBOC)- The mid-Atlantic is being hit by a storm that could bring its heaviest snowfall in four years.
    
The National Weather Service received reports early Thursday of 15 inches at Baltimore, 11 inches in Washington and more than 10 inches in northern Delaware. Forecasters say the region could see its highest snowfall amounts since February 2010. Snow is expected to mix with sleet in some areas through the morning.
    
Crews worked through the night to clear snow from roads and schools and government offices throughout the region are closed.
    
Heavy snow closed all runways at Reagan National and Dulles International airports early Thursday.
    
Maryland and Virginia have declared states of emergency and Delaware has issued a limited state of emergency and a driving warning. D.C. officials say vehicles parked on emergency routes will be towed.
