Highway Mountain Pass in WA State Closed Overnight

(Image from earlier pass conditions 21 Dec 15 on KIRO-7 TV)

A winter storm has made driving through Washington State's mountain passes treacherous.  While I was on duty Snoqualmie Pass was closed temporarily due to vehicular spin-outs and accidents.  Avalanches are a common winter hazard.

Just as I was leaving work, it was announced Snoqualmie Pass would be closed until daylight today, while delays could be expected on other mountain passes.

For anyone traveling through Washington State this Christmas weekend, you can check out WSDOT Mountain Pass Report.
