This week’s storm, the biggest of the winter season so far, has created significant travel delays on high-elevation roadways throughout Northern California. It’s estimated that 3-5 feet of snow has fallen since Friday, with more on the way on through Tuesday.

Let’s take a look at all the roads around NorCal to see how they’re fairing during the storm.
