Not much to say about today on Mt. Hood, other than, “It’s beautiful up here.” Clear, cool and calm. Freezing level at 1000’ or lower. Rising to 2000’ in the evening, with winds picking up to SW 15-20.
Tomorrow starts off with the snow level at 2000’, slowly rising to 4500’ by 10pm. Wind will be SW 25-35 early, rising to SW 35-45 by 10am. Precip starts around 7am, with .2-.3” water value before 4pm, for 3-4” of new snow. We’ll see another .5” by 4am Tuesday, for a couple inches of wet snow switching to rain.
By 4am Tuesday, the snow level will be at 6000’, meaning we’ll see rain at the base. The snow level will rise to 8000’+ by 4pm. Winds will be SW 50-60+. Heavy rain will start around 2pm, remaining heavy through midnight or later. Total rainfall depends on the track of this system, but 2” is not out of the question (NOAA is calling for 3-8” in the coast range).
The snow level will be down to 5000’ by 1am Wednesday, 4000’ by 7am, with heavy snowfall and SW wind at 40-50 with a foot or more of new snow during the day.
Have a great day today. Enjoy the sun!
