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.
