Snowfall may block holiday commuters traveling from Bishop and Mammoth to Fresno this weekend. A huge storm will drop as much as 20 inches of snow from Yosemite National Park to North Lake Tahoe this week.
Meteorologists from the National Weather Service in Sacramento warn there is a good chance of whiteout conditions above 3,000 feet. Snow will fall at rates up to 3 inches an hour, and cause Sierra Nevada road closures.
People are advised to avoid driving through the Sierra Nevada between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. Tuesday.
Visibility is expected to improve after the storm, but snowfall may close the Tioga Pass, Donner Pass, and other mountain routes in the area above 4,000 feet through Thursday.
Learn about the weather conditions before getting on the road this Thanksgiving. Stay on top of road closures by calling the Caltrans hotline at 1-800-427-7642.
