By Wednesday night: snow in the passes

Yikes!  Snowflakes are already piling up.  Not on the ground so much, but on the Weather Service forecasts for the Cascade and Olympic Mountains.

By Wednesday evening, snow may be falling over much of the Cascades north of Interstate 90, as a front moves through and pass temperatures dip into the 20s.

Stevens Pass  could get one to three inches of snow Wednesday night while Snoqualmie Pass  gets less than an inch, with those totals increasing by the day through the weekend.

Heavier snowfall, three to six inches Wednesday night,  is expected on some high  mountain routes, including the highways to Mount Baker and the Paradise area on Mount Rainier.

By Saturday, snow could spread over much of Eastern Washington, from Wenatchee to Spokane, says the Weather Service.

Down in the Puget Sound lowlands, drivers are warned to watch out for freezing fog Tuesday night that could create hazardous conditions in some areas.  That’s particularly likely in the South Sound, where temps around Olympia and Shelton could dip below freezing.
