8:50 A.M. UPDATE:

I-395 North is sluggish at Seminary Road and again at the 14th Street Bridge.

I-66 West is congested near Glebe Road.

8:40 A.M. UPDATE:

The Dulles Toll Road lanes have reopened, but expect residual delays to linger in the area of the Leesburg Pike.

8:20 A.M. UPDATE:

An accident on the Dulles Toll Road is blocking the right lane and right shoulder near the ramp to the Leesburg Pike.

8:05 A.M. UPDATE:

There's reportedly a disabled vehicle on the 5300 Block of N. Capitol Street, so expect congestion in the area.

7:45 A.M. UPDATE:

I-395 North is pretty congested near Seminary Road again, while I-66 East is heavily jammed up at the Beltway.

The Outer Loop ramp to I-66 West has reopened.

7:40 A.M. UPDATE:

The disabled vehicle on the Outer Loop at New Hampshire Avenue has been cleared.

7:33 A.M. UPDATE:

An accident on the Inner Loop at Central Avenue was blocking one lane, and now it's just blocking the shoulder. There could still be some residual delays in that area.

There's also a disabled vehicle on the Outer Loop at New Hampshire Avenue.

7:25 A.M. UPDATE:

An accident is blocking the south exit ramp from the Outer Loop to I-66 West; both lanes of the ramp are blocked.

There's also an accident on the Outer Loop before Good Luck Road. One of the shoulders is blocked and it could cause delays.

7:05 A.M. UPDATE:

The local lane has reopened on I-270 North at Falls Road.

We're getting reports of congestion on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway in Laurel. Commuters, if you're seeing or hearing anything in that vicinity, let us know.

6:40 A.M. UPDATE:

I-395 North is sluggish as you approach Seminary Road.

The disabled vehicle on the I-95 North reversible lane has been cleared.

One local lane on I-270 North is still blocked at Falls Road by roadwork.

6:20 A.M. UPDATE:

There are pretty bad delays already on I-66 East at the Beltway and at Chain Bridge Road.

ORIGINAL POST:

Good morning, commuters. There are some flurries anticipated later on, but the morning rush hour should be chilly with clear skies. Some roads remain a bit slippery from the snow and ice last week, so use caution. But it should be much clearer than last week's frozen commutes.

Check back here throughout the morning for updates on your morning rush. Let us know what you see out there -- any roads or lanes blocked? Any ice causing problems on your sidewalks or streets? Let us know in the comments below.

A disabled vehicle in the reversible lane on I-95 North shortly before the Springfield Interchange could cause some delays in that vicinity.

One local lane on I-270 North is blocked at Falls Road by roadwork.
