WEDNESDAY, Calif. (VVNG.com) — Motorists traveling southbound on the I-15 freeway through the pass are reporting rain, wind, and the thick fog near the top of the pass Wednesday morning.

The fog at the summit is causing southbound traffic to slow-down near Ranchero Road. As of 9:00 am there were no accidents reported in the pass.

Most of the fog dissipates after Highway 138.

People planning a trip to the mountain community of Wrightwood are advised of R2 chain conditions. Caltrans has chain control setup at State Route 2, just west of Scrub Mountain.
