With the arrival of the first winter storm of the season, Tioga Pass on Highway 120 in Yosemite National Park closed Thursday.
The storm is bringing rain to the Sierra with significant snowfall expected at higher elevations. The pass sits at nearly 10,000 feet in elevation.
Once the storm has passed, an assessment will be made on reopening of the pass.
