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.

Thursday’s weather should be quite pleasant, according to the Capital Weather Gang. Some clouds, but mostly it’s all dry air and light breezes and reasonable temperatures.

So far:
