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 warmer today than it was on Tuesday, but the real heat is coming over the next few days, according to the Capital Weather Gang.
