ORIGINAL POST:

Good morning, commuters. There was a light snow and some flurries in the area last night, so when you head out today watch out for any lingering slick spots -- especially to the south and east, according to the Capital Weather Gang. (Here are the school delays/closings.)Things warm up as the day goes on, so that problem should decrease later on today, but for now remember to be careful whether you're driving, walking or biking anywhere. Keep your eyes on Dr. Gridlock throughout the morning, as we will update you during the commute on any headaches and issues. Make sure to let us know anything you see or hear about in the comments section below or on Twitter (@DrGridlock).
