The view from the Valley is that both Mt. Adams and Mt. Rainier are out and showing their glory today. The view from the Mt. Rainier webcams, however, show that shortly after noon, no one has come to the parking lot at Paradise except the plow, the road looks somewhat treacherous to the west, and the view of the mountain is a view of no mountain. My guess is that the road to Paradise is closed today.
Mt. Rainier influences its local weather--no matter what is happening in the rest of the state. I do know that there has been snow today west of the Cascades.
