The California Highway Patrol reopened Interstate 5 through the Grapevine early today after the pass was shut down due to overnight snow.

The interstate was closed for nearly six hours.

An official from the CHP station at Fort Tejon said the freeway fully reopened around 7:30 a.m., and the roadway is now fully clear.

“It’s not snowing up here at the moment,” the official said. “But everything is white.”

To the east, Interstate 15 through Cajon Pass is also open.

Several school districts, including Julian and Mountain Empire, are closed today due to snow.

The National Weather Service says a winter storm warning will last until at least 10 p.m. today.

CHP officers and police throughout Southern California say the rain, hail, lightning and snow caused traffic crashes, spinouts and stalls.

One traffic fatality in Santa Ana may have been caused by rain-slicked streets.
