Mount Rainier officials are now estimating the road from Longmire to Paradise will be open about noon. Crews are currently plowing the parking lots and road at Paradise.
The Paradise area has received 14 inches of snow since Friday afternoon.
Plenty of new snow in the mountains is causing access issues in some places, but should make for a good day on the ski slopes.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning until Sunday night. The forecast calls for at least of foot of snow in the mountain passes.
