I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Yosemite NP:
A winter storm has arrived at Yosemite and may impact roads within the park through tomorrow (Thursday).

Yosemite is open via Highway 41/Wawona Road and Highway 120 from the west/Big Oak Flat Road. Be prepared for wet, icy, and/or snowy driving conditions. Call 209/372-0200 (then 1, 1) to check road conditions.

Highway 140 will close between El Portal and Midpines (west of Yosemite) at 3 pm today (Wednesday). View Highway 140's status at http://dot.ca.gov/hq/roadinfo/sr140.
