Snow winds down but not before closing schools and making a mess of the morning commute

Light snow that began falling overnight across parts of the D.C. metro region caused delays - and a few closings - to schools across the DMV and made for a very slick morning commute.

A Winter Weather Advisory was in place for much of the Washington, D.C. and Baltimore metro regions until 9 a.m. Road crews began pre-treating surfaces Tuesday night leaving most of the major highways clear but hundreds of accident were reported throughout the area. Side streets and untreated surfaces could see any snow that fell turn into ice.

Numerous schools delayed their start times Wednesday morning. Some major school districts closed their doors for the day. The snow moved to the southeast by late morning but the cold will stick around for the rest of the day with highs near 30 degrees. Warm temperatures make their way into the area over the weekend.
