Original Post:

Good morning, commuters! There could be more showers and thundershowers across the region today, according to the Capital Weather Gang. The rain over the last few days, particularly on Wednesday night, could have pooled and caused some flooding in some spots. Be careful when you head out today.

We’ll be keeping an eye on the roads and rails this morning, reporting any delays or issues — and we will need your help: If you hear about any congestion, delays, problems or anything at all, tell us in the comments section below or by tweeting @drgridlock.
