Plan for rain, wind and maybe some snow for the Apple Cup, plus poor road conditions

Drive safe and be prepared, Cougs.

NCAA Football: Arizona at Washington State James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

In case you haven’t heard, this Friday’s Apple Cup is shaping up to be a pretty important one for your Washington State Cougars. Win, and they’re in the Pac-12 Championship Game with a shot at the Rose Bowl. Lose, and they wait and hope they’re selected for a New Year’s Six bowl game.

So, it’d be nice to be in Martin Stadium to witness history. To do so, you’ll have to safely get to Martin Stadium.

Jeff Sevigney of the Washington State Patrol wants you to know that the mountain passes in Washington are expected to be in poor condition tomorrow and Friday.

This has been CougCenter’s warning to drive safe, give yourself plenty of time, and come prepared for some possible road conditions straight from a nuclear winter (that might be some hyperbole but you get the idea).

Make sure you bookmark this page from the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) to track the conditions. You can also download the WSDOT app.

Meanwhile, the weather forecast—as of this writing—calls for a 70 percent chance of rain Friday evening, with winds of 10-20 MPH coming from the west (there’s a UW joke in there somewhere). The low for Friday night is 32 degrees, which means we could see some flakes, and I’m not talking about your relatives who were no-shows at Thanksgiving.
