WASHINGTON (AP) - Federal agencies in the Washington area are open as a winter storm is set to move in.

The U.S. Office of Personnel Management, which sets leave policies for 300,000 federal workers, says the government is open Wednesday, but employees can take unscheduled leave or work from home.

A winter weather advisory is in effect until 6 p.m. in the Washington region and beyond, with accumulations of up to 4 inches forecast for some parts.

The snow was expected to develop sometime Wednesday morning and continue through the day. The National Weather Service says the heaviest snow is expected to fall between the late morning and into the early afternoon.

The agency warns that driving conditions may be hazardous during the morning commute.
