Thank you for using this forecast! Your donations keep this forecast going – despite rumors to the contrary, nobody pays me to write this and post it. This forecast started as a way for me to find better windsurfing conditions. It morphed into a way for me to find better skiing in the winter. Seemed silly to keep that information to myself, so it’s here for you (almost) every day. Make a $12 or larger donation, and you’re on the email list for a year. No dealing with the twice-yearly pledge drive. Sometimes I even have prizes to give away from the email list sponsors. Thank you again for your support! Enjoy the snow and wind and sun!

Good morning,

When I got down from working at Meadows yesterday, it was downright hot in the valley. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not complaining. But my body was confused. I put on shorts and a jersey and went for a ride, and I wasn’t cold. I kept expecting to grow cold, but I didn’t. I grew hot, and I drank all my water, and my skin turned brown from riding in the late-afternoon sun. Ah, spring!

In Gorge weather today, we’ll see sunshine with temps in the low 40’s early and near 70 in the afternoon. Wind will be E 21-24 through noon at Stevenson and Rooster, dropping after that. The rest of the Gorge sees E wind at 5-8.

Tomorrow looks sunny too, with temps in the mid-40’s early and the upper 60’s in the afternoon, with west wind at 18-23 early in the Central Gorge, picking up to 24-28 from the Hatchery to Doug’s in the afternoon. Tuesday brings another round of morning mid-40’s and afternoon upper 60’s, with light wind.

Up on Mt. Hood, the freezing level will be 12,000′ today, with light wind. Tomorrow sees the freezing level drop to 8-9000′ with light west wind. Tuesday looks just like Wednesday. Thursday, Friday and Saturday look warm and wet, with colder wet weather on Sunday and Monday.

Have an awesome day today!
