WASHINGTON (AP/WBOC) - The mid-Atlantic region is getting another round of snowfall.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for much of the region though noon Wednesday, with the peak snowfall expected during the morning rush.

Maryland's State Highway Administration says crews are salting state highways, but during their morning commute drivers should be cautious because roads are expected to be slippery.

The weather service is forecasting about 1 inch to 3 inches of snow in the District of Columbia and to the south and west of the city, but less to the north. About 2 inches of snow is expected on Maryland's Eastern Shore and in Delaware. The state Department of Transportation said that hundreds of plows are on the road, applying salt and sand. DelDOT noted late Wednesday morning that so far, there is virtually no accumulation but that was expected to change as the snow continues to fall.

The federal government is open in the Washington region, but workers have the option to take unscheduled leave or telework.

    Devastating Fire Destroyed the Old Wicomico Youth & Civic Center 40 Years Ago Tuesday

    40 years ago Tuesday the old Wicomico Youth and Civic Center was destroyed by one of the county’s most devastating fires.

    On June 27, 1977, a floor buffer sparked a highly flammable sealant being applied and, in an instant, the community’s cherished center shot up in flames, dark smoke billowing that could be seen as far south as Princess Anne and as far north as Laurel, Del.
