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.

It’s going to be a very cloudy and foggy morning, according to the Capital Weather Gang, so visibility could be an issue. Use extra caution this morning.

Watch out for:

— A funeral procession for Marine Capt. Michael M. Quin could cause traffic issues this morning. Quin, who graduated from Loudoun Valley High School in 2002, was one of seven Marines killed last month when two helicopters collided during a training exercise in Arizona.

Quin will be buried this morning at Arlington Cemetery, with services scheduled for 8:45 a.m. The funeral procession will pass through Leesburg on Route 7 with a law enforcement escort, which could cause traffic issues until about 6:30 a.m. in Leesburg.
