Outlook for the weekend is better after Thursday night closure of Snoqualmie Pass


Snoqualmie Pass had its first snow-related closure of the season early Thursday evening after multiple spinouts and collisions.

The Washington State Department of Transportation closed Interstate 90 westbound about 5:15 p.m. at Easton and followed that a short time later with an eastbound closure near the summit of the pass.

The pass was fully reopened at midnight.

Snow continued to fall into this morning but the pass remained open with a traction tire advisory.

Chains were required on all vehicles except all-wheel drive on Stevens Pass into this morning.

No new snow on the passes is being forecast tonight and Saturday.
