    Several major school systems in the D.C. area closed schools Wednesday after light snow left many roads slick. 

    Snow began falling in the D.C. area overnight, and it's expected to continue until about noon Wednesday. 

    Up to a half an inch of snow is expected in the D.C. metro area. Despite the low accumulation, many untreated surfaces are slippery. 

    Schools in Anne Arundel, Prince George's and Montgomery County in Maryland were scheduled to be delayed, but school officials later decided to cancel classes because of road conditions.

    Students were happy to have a snow day Wednesday in Prince George's County, Maryland, but it will mean they lose a scheduled day off in February. Tracee Wilkins reports the school system has already used its two alotted snow days.

    Schools in Prince William County, Virginia, were also closed. 

    Federal agencies in D.C. opened on time.

    Storm Team4 says this will be our last chance for snow in at least the next 10 days. 

    The afternoon high is expected to be near 30 degrees, but gusty winds will make it feel like it's in the teens. Wednesday night will be the coldest in the 10-day forecast, Storm Team4 says.

    Thursday's temeratures will be in the teens, with wind chills near 5 degrees.
