FEB recommends Baltimore-area feds leave early; OPM to keep DC-area offices open

Ahead of the expected winter weather, including freezing rain, the Baltimore Federal Executive Board is recommending agencies in that region close at 1:30 p.m. on Monday.

The National Weather Service says Baltimore is experiencing snow showers and freezing rain is expected until about 6 p.m. when temperatures rise above freezing.

The final decision is up to each individual agency, however.

As for D.C.-area federal employees, the Office of Personnel Management said in a tweet that DC-area offices will remain open. “For further guidance, employees should follow their agency’s policies and procedures,” OPM said on Twitter.

Federal News Radio’s sister station WTOP reports that several D.C.-area school systems are closing early as freezing rain is expected to fall starting this afternoon and continuing into the evening.
