    Snow fell in parts of the region Monday morning, leading to school delays and closures south and west of the District.

    With road temperatures above freezing, the snow wasn't expected to pile up on roadways, but streets were slick in some parts.

    The snow accumulated mostly on grassy areas, with up to 3" in western Culpeper County and 1"-2" in Prince William County and surrounding counties. The National Weather Service said that Reagan National Airport got a trace amount of snow, while .8 inches were reported at Washington Dulles International Airport.
