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.

Friday’s weather approaches perfection, according to the Capital Weather Gang. It will be chilly in the morning, warm and pleasant by the late afternoon and mostly sunny. There will still be some gusty winds, so be ready for that.

So far:

— A disabled vehicle on I-66 West before the Beltway is blocking the right lane.

— There are no Metro delays or issues right now. Similarly, all VRE trains seem to be running on time. MARC Penn Line train 507 is running 10 minutes late.
