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.

We’re in for another breezy, chilly April day, according to the Capital Weather Gang. Highs will top out in the upper 50s to lower 60s. (If you’re heading to see, say, a baseball game this afternoon, it will be brisk but otherwise fine weather for a day at Nationals Park.)

So far:

— MARC riders: All Brunswick Line trains will board on the opposite track at the Brunswick station once again.
