    Metro officials said commuters should expect limited underground Metrorail service to start at 7 a.m., and very limited Metrobus service from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., as icy conditions on roadways and Metrorail tracks continue to be a barrier to providing safe service.

    MetroAccess service for Monday will be suspended for the entire day "due to impassable road conditions," WMATA said.

    Fewer than two dozen Metrobus lines will be in service on Monday due to snowy and icy conditions that persist on the region’s roadways. Metrobuses will stick to snow emergency routes to start the day.

    Metro is open underground as follows:

    Yellow Line – Pentagon to Crystal City
    Red Line – Medical Center to Union Station and Glenmont to Forest Glen (not reflected in the service map)
    Orange Line – Ballston to Stadium-Armory
