Mountain Travel: A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued by the National Weather Service for the Cascade highways, which is in effect for this afternoon through Thursday afternoon. Snow accumulations of 5 to 10 inches expected between 3,500 and 5,000 feet. However, 10 to 20 inches are likely for elevations above 5,000 feet. Snow will be heavy at times later tonight into Thursday morning. West to southwest winds will increase later today, with breezy winds of 15 to 25 mph tonight through Thursday. Wind gusts up to 30 mph at the passes likely, but gusts over 45 mph likely on the higher exposed peaks and ridges, primarily above 6,000 feet. Travel could be very difficult. Be prepared for winter driving conditions. A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. Expect snow-covered roads, limited visibilities and use caution while driving.
