FWIW;

kcra.com the local sacramento television station has a pretty good active weather map on their web site. While traveling I try to find similar stations in whatever area I'm heading. It's not road info but advance movement of weather may help.
Key West is in the other direction!!
It's supposed to be cold rain starting later tonite for 2 daze.
Travel safe. 101 is fine

I work with the trucking business in central California and everyone is using 101 as both the grapevine and Hwy 58 through Tehachapi is closed. There will be a lot of trucks on 101 due to the diverted traffic which means heavy traffic in the already tight areas. May be best to wait until the grapevine reopens which is usually fairly quickly after a snow fall. They close it when just a small amount foosnow falls so once the storm passes, it reopens pretty fast.

I take the 101 from Morgan Hill to LA from time to time. It's a much more relaxing drive, with nicer stops along the way. You never really have to worry too much about traffic and it wont add on as much time as people like to say it will. The roads are wet around here now, but not so much that you can't make it to where you want to go. If you start out by 9 you'll be here by 4 or 5. Good luck.

Clear Sailing

Hi, Bambi Bandit. This morning we left Morgan Hill takeing 101 south to Pismo Beach. The traffic was moveing good, not too crowded, not wet, and it was smooth sailing all the way. We only passed one rest stop and it is closed for remodeling. [both sides] Tommorrow we will finish going south arriving in Lakewood. 101 seems to be the only/best way to go.

Made it!

Thanks for everyone's input. We pulled out of the KOA at 10:30, and got to Morgan Hill at 6:30. No heavy congestion as I was expecting, but did see the southbound lanes back up for about 10 miles due to some road lane closure.

I really did enjoy the scenery and it was an easy pull with no grades or snow. I think I'll change my norm from I-5 to 101... and try to stop and see some of the state beaches next time.

Glad you made it safely. How was the condition of the road. California roads are in somewhat of bad state these days. I dont remember many potholes on 101 but that can change when we dont maintain them.
