SAN DIEGO (CBS/AP) — The California Highway Patrol has reopened a 40-mile stretch of Interstate 5 north of Los Angeles that was closed for many hours due to snow.
The CHP began escorting southbound motorists through the high mountain pass Friday morning.
Blowing snow forced a shutdown of the key north-south highway at 4 p.m. Thursday, prompting hundreds of truckers to pull over and spend the night in their cabs.
California is in the grip of a cold snap that’s expected to last through the weekend.
Morning temperatures have fallen into the 20s and 30s in many areas, and much lower in the mountains.
