The notice said Tioga will be closed Sat 28th at 4PM, Glacier Point road was closed today at 8PM. Both are to be opened "Monday, conditions permitting", whatever that means. No time was given for "Monday".

Glacier Road and Tioga Reopening

Post by maverick » Mon Sep 30, 2019 11:34 am

Yosemite NP:
Good news! The Glacier Point Road reopened this morning at 8 am and the Tioga Road will reopen today at noon. Temperatures in the high country today will hover around freezing so use caution, as areas along the Tioga Road are still covered in snow and ice. As you can see, the weekend storm brought a dusting of snow to the Tuolumne Meadows area.

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.
