Yosemite in March

I'm thinking of taking a trip to Yosemite in March. I've been to Yosemite many times before, but always in the summer/fall. People who have been to Yosemite in March, is snow an issue? Especially after the huge snowfall of this winter, will Yosemite be melted out enough to be climbable and dry in March? I know 120 will still be closed, but I'm hoping the valley will be clear. Anyone have any experience?

Tioga pass will not open until Memorial Day at the soonest.

"Melting out" is not an issue in the Valley per se, as snow rarely lasts long on the valley floor. BUT, its a question of how stormy March is. It can be heavy snow, torrential rain or dry and perfect. No one knows what this march will bring.
