Apple Cup 2014 weather: Cold, but probably no snow bowl

New, 4 comments

It's snowing all over the place on the west side of Washington, but Pullman is unlikely to be buried in snow come game time. Despite the chance of some accumulation -- maybe an inch -- it's expected to be cold and dry on Saturday night as the Washington Huskies take on the Washington State Cougars.

Temperatures at kickoff are expected to dip all the way down to about 20 degrees, falling further as the game progresses. Factor in a bit of wind and we're looking at weather somewhere between brrrr and hell no it's way too cold.

While the weather during the game is expected to be delightful(ly cold), the bigger issue may be getting to the game. The mountain passes have been moving slow for most of the day, and the Seattle area and foothills were hit with a dusting of snow this morning. Traction tires are advised on Snoqualmie pass and it looks like the worst of the weather has passed. Still: be careful traveling to the game, whether from Spokane or Seattle (if you're just leaving now, you're late).

For those in the crowd, dress warmly and prepare for one of the colder Apple Cups. And watch as Washington players come out for warmups shirtless, because that's always a thing too.
