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.

Check traffic conditions in the Sacramento area.
