Update (Sunday, Feb. 28, 2010, 6 a.m.)—No further incidents have occurred through the night. There is snow on the ground this a.m., but roads are open and clear. If temperatures drop, watch for ice. Drive carefully.

At 5:26 p.m. there was a collision possibly involving three vehicles on the northbound Grapevine just north of Ft. Tejon road, near the El Tejon School. An ambulance responded, according to CHP reports. We will post an update as more information becomes available.

Lebec, Frazier Park and Pine Mountain (Saturday, Feb. 27, 2010, 6:20 a.m.)—The Grapevine is open. High winds and precipitation during the night have left less than one inch of wet snow at 6000 feet in Pine Mountain Club and deeper snow at the higher elevations. Roads are clear and snow is soft throughout the Mountain Communities region. It is likely to melt off quickly. If temperatures suddenly drop it could get icy. Please drive cautiously.
