Original Post:

Good morning, commuters! 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.

Wednesday morning’s commute could be wet and tricky, according to the Capital Weather Gang. Heavy showers and thunderstorms are going to move from west to east for at least the early part of the commute.

So far:

— An accident on northbound U.S. 301 at Dyson Road in Brandywine is blocking all northbound lanes there.

— MARC Penn Line trains 511 and 517 will both be one car short this morning, and as a result there could be overcrowding on the other cars.
