  1. Default San Fran- San Diego

    Hi all, I really need advice from you. Im from Ireland and myself and 5 friends are flying into San Fran in late November (this year). We are then hiring are car and hitting the open road. We know for definite that we want to visit: Lake Tahoe, Yosemite (if it is possible- I have been warned that it might be too dangerous with snow!), Las Vegas, Palm Springs, San Diego. Any suggestions on our trip- will it be safe at that time of the year and what will the weather be like? We are new to this so any type of advice would be really helpful! Thank you!

    Default Welcome!

    Welcome to the RoadTrip America Forum!

    The Southern part of your route shouldn't cause you too many, if any problems, though it can and does snow in Las Vegas. One thing to keep in mind is the type of vehicle you are going to need for 6 people and all of their gear. Do you have an idea of what you are going to be renting?

    Default Unpredictable.

    Hello there,
    The weather is unpredictable at best and you need to pack layered and warm clothing for all occasions. On the coast it can be anything from wet and foggy to nice clear crisp days and warmer days in the south with cold nights.
    Yosemite isn't dangerous but there is a very good chance the Tioga pass will be closed [120 to Lee vining] due to snow. Here are the opening/closures for the past few years.
    You can expect the possibility off ice and snow flurries on the valley floor and the chance of some delays but it is accessible all year round.

    Here is the Yosemite website where you can keep an eye on conditions and other info.

    If you have any other questions don't hesitate to ask.
