TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Travel to Mt. Lemmon has been restricted throughout Monday morning due to severe weather conditions, but there still may be time to make it up to the snow today. 
 
Priscilla S. Cornelio, Director of the Pima County Department of Transportation says Mt. Lemmon highway is expected to open Monday at noon.
 
Motorists will still need snow chains and four-wheel drive to make it up the mountain, and drivers should take extreme caution while driving through any snow and ice.
