Where to get up-to-date road conditions

We will be driving from Marrakech to Ouarzazate at the end of the month and then back via Demnate and the falls.

Where can we get information on road conditions as I understand that the passes could receive snow and we only have a 2WD vehicle. Is there a reliable website that has road conditions/ closure information?

There are snow barriers at strategic places which would be lowered if the roads are closed, so there's no real likelihood that you will be caught out. Otherwise check weather forecasts, if it's cold weather and there's heavy rain, for example, in Marrakech, then it might fall as snow on the Ouarzazate road.

Today, however, the temperatures in Ouarzazate and Marrakech were in the mid 20s (centigrade) and the Tichka pass between the two cities was a mild 12ºC.
