Chains required on Snoqualmie Pass

Compact snow and ice on the road means chains required in both directions on Snoqualmie Pass. (DOT highway camera / Snoqualmie Summit)

Nothing says winter like this: Chains are required on all vehicles going over Snoqualmie Pass in both directions right now (2:30 p.m.) unless you have an all-wheel drive vehicle, says the state Department of Transportation.

Oversize vehicles are prohibited.

It’s snowing up there and there is snow and ice on the roadway.

The forecast has called for 1 to 2 feet of snow in the Cascades by tomorrow morning.
