Original Post:

Good morning, commuters! It’s downright balmy today, at least when compared to the middle of the week according to the Capital Weather Gang. There will be a decent breeze and some sunshine, while people in the southern part of the region could hit 60 degrees today.

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.
