Snow! Snow! More snow! Yes, there could be snow in Yosemite for Thanksgiving!
Hope you weren’t planning to cross the Sierra anytime soon because the passes (Tioga, Sonora, Ebbets) are all closed due to snow.
What was supposed to be a “weak storm” is actually dropping a nice bit of rain and even some snow on our part of the Sierra.
After reading yesterdays weather forecast for the week I didn’t really figure I’d see this much rain and snow. Currently there is rain and snow falling on the western slope of the Sierra from Sequoia/Kings Canyon to Lake Tahoe. No word on road closures at this time (5am).
For information on road conditions within the park call (209) 372-0200 and then select options 1 and then 1 again.
A winter storm has snuck in bringing with it high winds, rain and…snow.
More rain and snow is forecast for later this week and we couldn’t be happier! Last year California experienced an abnormally dry year. This year is almost the polar opposite (pun intended) according to Department of Water Resources survey teams who made their first water content report of the year this week.
If you were thinking about heading up and traversing the Sierra via Tioga Pass (Highway 120) you can forget it.
