How to Read Our Snow Data Above
Snowfall amounts for 12hr (overnight), 24hr, and 48hr timeframes are based on measurements taken at 5am daily. 24hr and 48hr snow totals are cumulative, so whatever fell in the last 24 is built into the 48. Between 5pm and 5am our weather data is automatically updated based on telemetry data from Northwest Weather and Avalanche Center and represents our overnight totals. The "Since 5am" snowfall amount is based on manual measurements taken periodically throughout the day.

Always remember to check WSDOT for I-90 road conditions before you leave home. Winter storms are less likely this time of year, but it's still plenty possible and we're known to get some April snow. It's also important to check the WSDOT for information about spring and summer construction and how that may impact your travel plans.
