D.C. schools are opening with a two-hour delay over snowfall overnight, Mayor Muriel Bowser announced early Wednesday.

“Forecasts indicate that the District will see snow accumulations at the peak of rush hour this morning,” she said in a statement. “A two hour delay for DC Public Schools will help ensure that District students are able to get to school safe, secure and ready to learn.”

Federal agencies are opening on time but employees have the option to work from home or take unscheduled leave. D.C. government offices are open, too.

All Metro trains were running on schedule as of 7:20 a.m. WMATA reminded riders to be cautious in slippery stations and parking lots.

Yellow Line service was restored Tuesday night after being suspended since deadly smoke filled a tunnel near L’Enfant Plaza Monday afternoon. The affected train was moved to a rail yard for the National Transportation Safety Board investigation to continue.
