Passes close due to snow

Tioga (Highway 120) and Sonora (Highway 108) passes closed this morning due to inclement weather. Rockslides and snow were reportedly responsible. With up to a foot of snow possible at Tioga Pass through tomorrow night, expect these passes to reopen no earlier than Wednesday. Check road conditions for the latest updates.

Lee Vining got over an inch of rain last night, with more on the way. By tomorrow afternoon snow levels are expected to reach Highway 395 at Conway and Deadman Summits, although little or no accumulation is expected. Check the latest weather conditions here.
