Original post:

Good morning, commuters. Overnight storms cooled down the Washington area, but wet roads and lingering showers will make for a slippery commute.

Here are more traffic and transportation issues to be aware of as you start your day:

George Washington Parkway: A fallen tree has closed all northbound lanes on the George Washington Parkway between Roosevelt Bridge/US-50/I-66 and Spout Run Parkway.

Flooding: Most of the severe weather has passed, but high water and flooding is being reported on local roads, especially in Northern Virginia. Birdfoot Lane in Reston is closed between Lawyers Road and Stuart Mill Road due to flooding.

Metrorail: Green Line trains are operating on both tracks between Fort Totten and Prince George’s Plaza. No further delays are expected as a result of Friday’s derailment outside the West Hyattsville station. Officials said heat-related speed restrictions on all lines have been lifted.

I-70 Eastbound: The two left lanes of I-70 East near Route-94/Woodvine Road are blocked due to an accident after a car spun out due to wet roads.
