* Light Rail train service is suspended between Timonium and Hunt Valley Stations and is scheduled to remain so until July so four existing deteriorated grade crossings in the Hunt Valley area can be replaced, according to the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) website, mta.maryland.gov. A shuttle bus will be available to take people from the affected stations, which are Hunt Valley, Pepper Road, McCormick, Gilroy and Warren Road.

Tonight's low is expected to be around 59 degrees with a 30 percent chance of precipitation.

* The Longmeadow Road-Marsh Pike intersection is still undergoing an improvement project. Workers are assisting traffic when needed at the intersection.

* Only one lane of Md. 550 in Thurmont, Md., is open between Eylers Valley Flint Road and Kelbaugh Road due to a mudslide that occurred last April. However, it could reopen by early July.
