Catalina Highway is currently closed at the base due to ice, officials said.

The road closed early Wednesday morning due to stormy weather. A storm that moved across Tucson overnight brought rain and snow to the mountain, creating hazardous driving conditions on the road to Summerhaven.

Catalina Highway reopened about 1 p.m. to vehicles with four-wheel drive or four-wheel drive with chains, but drivers were advised to use caution and watch for fog, snow and ice.
