Snow Blankets Yosemite Valley as Authorities Warn of Winter Storm Conditions

The National Weather Service said on Sunday, November 8, that winter storm conditions were expected to impact parts of the western US.

The Yosemite National Park shared footage of snow blanketing Yosemite Valley on November 8. It was the park’s first snow since being affected by the Creek Fire.

Sierra National Forest’s Twitter account shared pictures of the snow, taken about five miles south of Mammoth. It said the snowfall “definitely helped mellow fire behavior in that neck of the woods.” Credit: Yosemite National Park via Storyful
