WASHINGTON (AP)- The Mid-Atlantic region is gearing up for a late-winter storm that could bring more than half a foot of snow in some places.

Rain turned to snow across Maryland and in the District of Columbia as the work day began Thursday. The federal government, Maryland, Delaware and District of Columbia closed offices Thursday and most schools in the region are closed.

The National Weather Service is now calling for 6 to 8 inches of snow in Maryland, 4 to 8 inches in Delaware and 4 to 6 inches in the Washington area. Meteorologist Matt Elliott says the predicted totals might be smaller than earlier predicts, but the snowfall will still threaten travel because of how quickly it will pile up.

Highway officials are warning drivers to stay off the roads unless necessary.
