The Outer Loop lane has reopened at New Hampshire Avenue. However, there's still an accident on New Hampshire Avenue at the Beltway, which could slow traffic in that vicinity (both approaching/exiting the Beltway and in the area of the on/off-ramps). So expect some issues in that spot.

6:40 A.M. UPDATE:
Commuters, are you seeing any icy spots on the roads or sidewalks out there? Yesterday's rain washed away a lot of the remaining snow (and higher temperatures melted some of the other snow), but as temperatures drop today some areas might see frozen or slick spots. Let us know what you see.
6:25 A.M. UPDATE:
The disabled vehicle has been cleared from I-95 North and the lane reopened.
It's sunny and chilly today, but at least there's no snow (well, no new patches of ice and snow). Yesterday's rain washed away a lot of the snow built up in some areas, but that resulted in some slick and wet roads and sidewalks yesterday. Things should be better today, but obviously exercise caution when you head out because there's still some snow in some spots.
Check back here throughout the morning for updates on what to expect during your morning commute. And send us anything you hear about in the comments below or via Twitter.
