Federal agencies in Washington will be open on Thursday, the Office of Personnel Management announced Wednesday evening.

Washington-area federal offices were closed on Wednesday in anticipation of a late winter snowstorm that was a no-show, at least in the District. Some of the surrounding suburbs, particularly those west of Washington, experienced heavy accumulation.

Here’s the notice from OPM for Thursday, March 7:

Federal agencies in the Washington, DC, area are OPEN.

Employees are expected to report to their worksites or begin telework on time. Normal operating procedures are in effect.

Employees account for their hours of work by WATS:

  • Working at a worksite in the DC area
  • Alternative work schedules (AWS) day off
  • Teleworking, or
  • Scheduled leave or other paid time off.
