Tioga / Glacier Point - Oct closing?

According to the Yosemite website, the Tioga and Glacier Point roads are currently closed. Right now I'm feeling rather crushed as seeing the sunset from GP and doing the drive from Yosemite over Tioga Pass and on up to Lake Tahoe were two of the planned highlights of our upcoming trip next week.

Based on historical data (link provided on the sticky post in this forum), it looks like having the Tioga and GP roads close so early in Oct is extremely rare; but the site does say they close "after the first major storm of the season".

Is today's storm enough to close them for the season, or are they currently just closed for safety's sake and likely to reopen when the weather warms up this weekend?
