WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. federal government offices in the Washington area will open three hours late on Thursday as the region digs out from a blizzard over the weekend, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management said on Wednesday.

Federal offices were closed in Washington on Monday and Tuesday and opened three hours late on Wednesday after some two feet (60 cm) of snow blanketed the metropolitan area.
