Less well known, perhaps, is Caltrans closed-circuit TV map, which allows people to see weather and traffic conditions in real-time throughout the state.
For example, if you want to see the traffic and weather in Oakhurst at the intersection of Highways 41 and 49, click on this link.

Start by going to the Caltrans CCTV link, then click on the location you want to see.
