Weather for the end of October

We have just booked accomodation in the village for the last week of October. What will the weather be like then? Will the Tioga pass still be open at that time of year? When do the leaves change colour?

The average high is 73 and average low is 41 in October with an average precipitation of 2.27 inches - numbers brought to you by Yahoo Weather.

Here are the historic closing dates for Tioga Pass. The average is November 1, so you have about a 50% chance of it being open.


When I have been in Yosemite that time of year, the leaves were changing and it was beautiful.

The fall colors vary from year to year. The best viewing is along the Hwy 395 area and that is usually earlier in October. The lower in elevation the later the leaves change color. You should still be able to see some fall colors as mentioned in Yosemite Valley for your time period.
