Early-Morning Snow Showers Delay Some Schools Monday

Here's the forecast for D.C., Maryland and Virginia

NBC Universal, Inc.

After Super Bowl Sunday brought some snow to parts of the D.C. area, more snow showers and icy roads lingered Monday morning, causing some schools to close or delay their start times.

The region saw snow showers early Monday morning, before they tapered off after daybreak. Icy roads were a concern in some areas.

Stafford County Public Schools initially said they would open one hour late, but later announced their buildings would be closed all day Monday, with asynchronous learning for students. Staff members were teleworking, the school system said.

Several other school systems, including public schools in Culpeper, Fauquier, Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania counties in Virginia, and Charles and St. Mary's counties in Maryland, were starting two hours late due to potentially hazardous streets.

The morning's snow showers didn't leave significant amounts behind.

A winter weather advisory was initially in effect for the region, but the National Weather Service downgraded what was expected in D.C. and within the Beltway to less than 1 inch of snow.

Some roads were expected to be slick early, but Monday is now bringing us plenty of sunshine. It's chilly, though, with temps only going up to the mid-30s and wind chills making it feel even colder.
