WASHINGTON (AP) - The Washington region is hunkering down ahead of expected snow.

Officials were asking motorists to stay off the roadways Monday evening, and hundreds of plows were out ahead of the storm.

National Weather Service meteorologist Howard Silverman says the D.C. metro area is expected to get six to eight inches of snow while northern Maryland can expect four to eight inches. Southern Maryland and central Virginia can expect eight to 10 inches.

Though snow was falling in places Monday afternoon, the storm’s core is expected to hit in the evening and overnight hours.

Places in the region have also tied or broken records for cold in the last few days. Dulles Airport hit a record 6 degrees Monday, breaking a record of 11 degrees set in 1963 and 1987.
