* As of 7 a.m., traffic was a little sluggish on I-495 in both directions, but was running smoothly on all the interstates throughout the area.

* Expect delays on the commuter buses and local bus systems in Baltimore due to a water main break on Light Street and a sink hole on Monroe. However, the MARC Train, Light Rail, Commuter Buses, the Metro Subway system and the Mobility service were all running on time and operating on their regular schedules, according to the Maryland Transit Administration website, mta.maryland.gov.

Tonight, it's expected to be mostly cloudy with a low around 71 degrees, showers and thunderstorms likely before 9 p.m., winds around 6 mph and a 60 percent chance of precipitation.

* West Memorial Boulevard is closed between South Potomac Street and Maryland Avenue due to storm water there from heavy rains in late May, according to a traffic advisory from the City of Hagerstown's website. The road will remain closed until the water recedes.

* Ernstville Road  in the Big Pool area is closed until late July for a drainage improvement project, according to a press release from the Washington County website.
