Make sure to let us know what you’re seeing. If you see or hear about any congestion, delays or problems, tell us in the comments section below or by tweeting @drgridlock.

The Capital Weather Gang forecast calls for clouds lingering in the morning, followed by sun and slightly warmer temperatures in the afternoon. Still, some strong winds could chill you while you head to and from work, so make sure to bring a jacket.
