Snow in the Mountains; Chains Required on 36
If you are planning on traveling into the mountains today, be prepared for snow. Hwy 299 is covered at several points. (Road conditions shown in photo above. Image taken at 7:33 a.m.)
Caltrans QuickMap shows chains required on Hwy 36 from Mad River to Forest Glen area.
On the other hand, there was a rainbow this morning on Hwy 101 just south of the 299 interchange.
