Freezing rain is expected to fall Thursday, Dec. 4, in the Cascades, including higher elevations in Whatcom and Skagit counties.
Drivers going through any mountain passes or high-elevation roads should be cautious, as any such rain will freeze on the roads, creating treacherous conditions.
The National Weather Service has a freezing rain advisory in effect until 10 p.m. Thursday. Freezing rain could continue overnight and into Friday at the higher elevations.
Mt. Baker Ski Area is expected to get a mix of freezing rain and snow on Thursday, likely turning to all snow overnight, according to the NWS. A few inches are expected by the weekend, but it’s unlikely based on the forecast that Baker will be able to open by Saturday.
