The Winter Storm Warning issued for Yosemite National Park and the lower Sierra Nevada of Mariposa County will continue until 11 PM tonight (Wednesday).
The total snow accumulations above the 4,000 foot elevation, will range from one to five feet. The higher you go, the more the snow.
Winds will gust as high as sixty mph. Strong winds could cause tree damage.
The cold wind chills, as low as 20 below zero, could result in hypothermia if precautions are not taken.
Travel could be impossible or very difficult with delays and chain controls. Slow down and use caution while traveling.
If you must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food, and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency.
The National Weather Service has also issued a Flood Watch for the central San Joaquin Valley and Mariposa County for elevations below 4,000 feet. This will continue until 11 PM tonight Wednesday.
Flooding caused by heavy rainfall continues to be possible. Excessive runoff could result in the flooding of rivers, creeks, streams, and other low-lying and flood-prone locations. Low-water crossings may be flooded. Area creeks and streams are already running high and could flood with more heavy rain.
You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.
