Weather snarls traffic on Highway 140

Jill Ballinger/GAZETTE EDITOR

Icy roads are causing problems for drivers heading into Mariposa right now.

The California Highway Patrol is responding to a number of spin outs between the BJ Ranch just east of Cathey's Valley and the top of the Guadalupe Grade.

None of the accidents appears to have caused any injuries. There are currently no chain restrictions on the highway. The only local road with chain restrictions right now is upper Jerseydale Road.

Drivers are advised to be aware that wet roads and extremely cold temperatures overnight are expected to create dangerous driving conditions tomorrow.
