The announcement is no surprise since the road was closed almost immediately once the storm hit on Tuesday, and multiple spinouts and collisions forced the California Highway Patrol to put a kibosh on any travel in the area. As of Wednesday morning, the road looked treacherous:

Another notable road closure in NorCal is Interstate 5 between Yreka and Redding, which remains closed for 100 miles due to multiple spinouts. There is no ETO for reopening.
