Passes Closed Due To Snow
Sonora, CA — Rain is hitting the foothills this morning and snow in the higher elevations.
Highway 108 Sonora Pass is closed at Kennedy Meadows, Highway 4 Ebbetts Pass is closed at the Mt. Reba turnoff and Highway 120 Tioga Pass at Crane Flat. The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for the Sierra Nevada, above 5,000 ft., through 10 o’clock this evening.
Travel with caution today. Looking ahead to the remainder of the week, there is a roughly 50% chance that precipitation will continue across the Sierra Nevada tomorrow, and then it will be mostly clear skies for the remainder of the week. Temperatures will be cooler than what has been experienced recently. Only peaking in the 50’s today, temperatures are expected to hover in the 60’s in the foothill elevations mid-to-late week.
