Due to storms over the last few days, Glacier Point Road in Yosemite National Park was closed Tuesday, and will be reassessed for possible reopening on Wednesday.

The road was reopened May 11 after it was closed during the snowy winter season. But the return of stormy weather forced the road to be closed yet again.
