Snowfall closes agencies for day

The snowfall and chill of the first big winter storm to hit the nation’s capital forced federal financial institution regulators to close for the day, along with other agencies not already affected by the partial government shutdown.

The White House’s Office of Personnel Management (OPM) announced late Sunday night that all federal offices not affected by the shutdown would be closed Monday, following the 12-inch snow that snarled roadways around the nation’s capital on Sunday and Sunday evening.

The Federal Reserve posted a notice in the calendar section of its website about its Washington offices closed, while the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) put out the word via its Twitter feed.

The Fed noted that daily and weekly releases it typically publishes on Mondays will be published on the first business day that its offices in the Washington, D.C. area reopen.
