Good morning, commuters! It’ll be another chilly day today, but at least we should avoid any rain. Check back with Dr. Gridlock throughout the morning, because we’ll be monitoring the morning commute and keeping tabs on any headaches. Make sure to let us know any issues you see out there, either in the comments below or via Twitter (@DrGridlock).

A disabled vehicle on I-270 South is blocking the right merge lane before the exit for Quince Orchard Road.

There’s an accident at 14th and C streets in Southwest Washington.

And the D.C. Fire Department is responding to something on the 4100 block of Albemarle Street in Northwest, which could create some traffic problems near Wisconsin Avenue in Tenleytown.
