Time for Traction: Snow on Snoqualmie Pass

WSDOT is reporting snow and slush on Interstate 90 over Snoqualmie Pass Sunday, Oct. 21, and the forecast for Sammamish and Issaquah this week is chilly and wet.

Heater holdouts take note: chilly, wet weather is the order of the week.

In Issaquah, the National Weather Service forecast snow showers for early Sunday morning, with daytime highs in the low- to mid-40s and overnight lows in the mid-30s throughout the week and with a snow elevation of 2,800 feet.

Sammamish looks to be slightly warmer, with daytime highs reaching to the low- to mid-50s throughout the week, and 40-60 percent chance of rain on most days.

Washington State Department of Transportation reported snow and slush on the roadway on Interstate 90 over Snoqualmie Pass this morning, Sunday, Oct. 21, around 7:30 a.m., and traction tires were advised.

WSDOT recommends that those traveling into higher elevations carry chains and have approved traction tires year-round. When chains are required, studded tires alone will not meet the chain requirement unless your vehicle is a four- or all-wheel drive vehicle.

Studded tires are legal in Washington from Nov. 1 through March 31.
