Slick roads greet morning commuters

Update (6:55 a.m.) The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for urban areas and small streams in Arlington and Fairfax counties and the cities of Alexandria, Fairfax, and Falls Church. The watch is in effect until 8:15 a.m.

Accidents continue to plague the region as travelers negotiate wet roads in the midst of a downpour. Some areas to look out for include: Route 29 at Fairland Road in White Oak; I-495 NB in Virginia just before the American Legion Bridge; I-495 NB between U.S. 50 and I-66; the Fairfax County Parkway at Wiehle Avenue; and New York Avenue eastbound between Bladensburg and North Capitol Street.

Original post: Good morning, fellow travelers. It's a wet one in Washington. The National Weather Service has issued a flood watch for our region until 10 a.m. this morning. Travelers around the Beltway and beyond report standing water in places, and reports of accidents are trickling in.

The Capital Weather Gang forecasts that heavy rains will continue through this morning. Stay alert for ponding on the roads and drive cautiously, keeping in mind that some of your fellow travelers may not be as alert as you are.
