Snoqualmie, Stevens passes clogged by snow

Associated Press

SEATTLE – Snowfall in the Cascades has led to intermittent closures of several mountain passes.

The state Transportation Department said Tuesday night that Interstate 90 across Snoqualmie Pass has reopened after a several-hour closure due to spinouts and avalanche control. U.S. Highway 2 over Stevens Pass also reopened Tuesday night. Highway officials said snow continues to fall in the passes, where a winter storm warning is in effect until this morning.

The National Weather Service expects 1 to 2 feet of new snow.
