Late spring snow covers Sherman Pass

SPOKANE, Wash.– It’s May 20, but winter isn’t over in the mountains yet. Snow fell for much of Friday morning on State Highway 20 above Sherman Pass in Ferry County. At 1:30 a.m. Friday afternoon, WSDOT snow removal crews reported six inches of snow!

Snow drags stubbornly and spent most of the day on the main road between Republic and Kettle Falls. The National Weather Service is calling for about two more inches of snow before conditions improve in the evening. A winter weather advisory is in place for the pass Friday afternoon.

Sherman Snow

Friday’s snow level is around 5000 feet, so snow is not expected around other parts of the Interior Northwest. Don’t be surprised if your local mountains look a little whiter this weekend.
