WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal offices in the DC area closed for Tuesday as a round of snow was expected to hit the region just in time for the morning commute.

On its website, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management said non-emergency federal employees will be granted excused absences, but other employees must telecommute Tuesday.

The District of Columbia government and city public schools also closed Tuesday in expectation of the weather.

The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for the Eastern Seaboard, including Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Wilmington, Del. Snow accumulations of 3 to 6 inches were expected.

The new snow comes on the heels of Sunday's wintry weather, which dumped several inches of snow on Philadelphia and northern Maryland.

Elsewhere, eastern and central Kentucky and southwest Virginia were expected to get 1 to 3 inches of snow. All of West Virginia was likely to see snow Tuesday, with 2 to 4 inches forecast for north and central parts of the state and 3 to 5 in the mountains.
