Before heading home for Spring Break, please check with WSDOT for pass conditions. On social media, you can find the latest WSDOT information at WSDOT Passes, WSDOT, and WSDOT Facebook. Drive slowly and increase following distances this weekend. Be prepared for delays and possible pass closures. Fill your fuel tank, and leave prepared with blankets, snacks and water. Avoid distractions- put your cell phone away and pull over at a safe place if you need to take a call or want to have a snack. Drive alert. Keep in mind, travel CAN wait until weather conditions improve over the passes.
Moderate to heavy rainfall combined with mild temperatures through Thursday may lead to increased snowmelt and renewed threats for possible ice jams and flooding. Numerous reports of flood problems across Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho. Several roads are experiencing some degree of flooding. Paradise Creek at Moscow is above flood stage. Please take appropriate caution and report flooding to your local law enforcement agency when you can do so safely.
Never drive vehicles through flooded areas as water may be too deep to pass safely. As little as one foot of water on the road can move most vehicles off the road.
