As snow quickly accumulates on Sherman Pass, the Washington Department of Transportation is warning travelers to drive carefully.

Shortly after 2 p.m. on Saturday, WSDOT East said around 4-6 inches of snow had accululated along a 12-mile stretch of road on State Route 20.

Additional snow plows are headed to the summit, and crews are working to remove trees that have fallen due to heavy snow and wind.

Those curious, crews are reporting about 4-6″ of snow and is accumulating over a 12 mile stretch of road on SR 20/Sherman Pass. Please use caution and give our crews space to plow. Coffee cup used to measure depth of snow �❄�❄ pic.twitter.com/esOgiukuHL
