Original Post:

Good morning, commuters. It’s going to be hot out there, but the kind of hot that’s relatively comfortable in July, according to the Capital Weather Gang. We’ll be keeping tabs on any headaches, issues or problems we hear about on the roads this morning. Make sure to tell us about anything you see out there — either in the comments below or via Twitter (@DrGridlock).
