<HTML>This weekend Yosemite Valley was sunny and warm. The meadows are starting to green and the falls are flowing quite well. There are a few patches of snow on the winter route up Nevada falls but the vast majority of the trail is clear and dry.</HTML>

<HTML>It actually snowed on the Valley floor today. Highways 41, 120, and the Hetch Hetchy road are currently at R2 chain restrictions, i.e. chains and/or four wheel drive. Currently there are no chain requirements for highway 140.

These conditions are subject to change of course.</HTML>
