Good morning, commuters. We're in for a milder day of weather, which is a nice change of pace from what's forecast for the rest of the week. Keep your eyes with the Dr. Gridlock blog this morning, as we'll be keeping tabs on headaches and problems awaiting you on the road.

Right now, roadwork is blocking two lanes and one of the shoulders on I-95 North at Cherry Hill Road.
