Original Post:

Good morning, commuters! After the wet, slippery commute on Monday morning, the biggest issue for Tuesday’s commute will be the fog, according to the Capital Weather Gang. Fog and cloudy conditions could make visibility tricky for drivers, so use extra caution when you’re on the road this morning. There are also a lot of areas that still have slippery or wet conditions, so you should be careful no matter how you’re getting around.

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.

And if you’re driving this morning, make sure to clear any remaining ice off of your car before heading out. Big chunks of ice falling from a car while driving can be extremely dangerous but is always avoidable.

So far:

— A utility problem on Accokeek Road/MD 373 at Bealle Hill Road in Accokeek was blocking the roadway in both directions. It has just reopened.
