Good morning, commuters. The final morning commute of the week is here, and it's going to be sunny and chilly. Make sure to dress in layers in case you have to wait a while for a train or otherwise hit any delays or headaches. Check back here throughout the morning for updates and information on your commute.

I-66 West closed overnight at the Dulles Toll Road, but was scheduled to reopen at 5 a.m.
