Original Post:

Good morning, commuters! Light wet snow, sleet and/or rain could arrive later this morning and last into the afternoon, according to the Capital Weather Gang. It will be cold, but not freezing, so no accumulation is expected. Watch out for delays that could be caused by a wintry mix falling this morning.

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.

So far:

The entrance elevator at the Cleveland Park Metro station will be out of service beginning on Monday and continuing through late April. The elevator will be modernized, and all main components of the elevator replaced, according to Metro.
