SNOQUALMIE PASS, Wash. — Snoqualmie Pass is back open early Friday between North Bend and Ellensburg after severe weather forced its closure Thursday. 

As of mid-morning Friday, traction tires are advised for westbound and eastbound traffic on Snoqualmie Pass, but oversized vehicles are prohibited. 

Those traveling through Stevens Pass will need chains unless their vehicle has all-wheel drive. Oversize vehicles are prohibited, as well.

The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) said drivers should plan for harsh driving conditions and possible delays. 

WSDOT closed I-90 from milepost 34 to 106 on Thursday evening after weather conditions shifted and several cars spun out. 

There were multiple collisions on Snoqualmie Pass Thursday evening. It's unknown if anyone was injured.
