road trip from Washington state to Phoenix in Feb

Trying to decide which is the better route to take for my journey down south. Normally, I would go through Utah but concerned about storms. Would I have a safer journey staying on the I 5 through Oregon and Northern California?

While your destination is AZ, your question is really about the northwest states and road/weather conditions there. I suggest you post in those forums.

I have made that drive before and I would choose boring I-5 because it is less risky as far as weather. Maybe come back through Utah on your way home if it is later in spring. When I drove it last May the worst weather I came across was snow in the Blue Mountains of Oregon.
