Good morning.

Skiing and snowboarding don’t get no more bettah than this.

We’ll see moderate to heavy snowfall on Mt. Hood today with the snow level at 0’. Snow will taper off after 1pm, remaining light to moderate through midnight. Winds will be nearly calm today. Total precip will be around .5”, for 6-8” more light and dry and fluffy blower powder.

Tomorrow starts off cloudy, but clears rapidly for a cold, dry, sunny day with the freezing level at 0’. Winds will be light until 4pm, building to E 20-30 late in the day.

Saturday starts off clear, with clouds moving in late in the afternoon. Winds start off light, building to NW 15-20 by 1pm and picking up again after 10pm. The freezing level will be at the surface.

By Sunday morning, we’ll have some wind issues. Early morning winds will be WNW 40-45, building to W 45-50 by 1pm. Models are all over the place with the snowfall on Sunday. One shows less than .25” and one shows nearly 1” of precip. Because I’m an optimist, I’m going with snow all day long for 8-10” of new. But we’ll have to wait 48 hours to see the real forecast.

It looks like we’ll see warmer temps next week, with the potential for icky-style warming on Wednesday, but that’s a long, long way out.

Yippee! Have a great day today!
