“Yosemite National Park is prepping for some winter-like conditions,” warns the Fresno Bee.
The park is closing Glacier Point Road and advising visitors to prepare for winter driving conditions (chains may be required) for the next several days along Highway 140, Hwy 120 and Hwy 41. Additional road closures may be called.
Snow amounts are expected to reach at least several inches in the mountain areas at around 7,000 feet, though the snow line could drop to as low as 5,500 feet. The highest elevations could see as much as one to two feet of snow, says National Weather Service forecaster Jim Bagnall.
“This is atypical,” Bagnall says.
According to the NWS forecast discussion, some locations could get as much — if not more — rain then they usually do for the entire month of May.
