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.

There shouldn’t be any major weather-related problems on your commute: Today will be sunny with mild breezes, according to the Capital Weather Gang.

So far:

— MARC Penn Lin train 409, which leaves Baltimore at 6:13 a.m., is going to operate with one fewer car than usual this morning. This could lead to some serious crowding on that train.

— A disabled vehicle on I-95 North in Lorton is blocking the right shoulder.

— Debris on the inner loop of the Beltway could cause issues around the exit for B.W. Parkway.
