This week’s forecast is brought to you by food. Specifically, Henni’s food. Henni’s Bar and Grill in White Salmon will feed you well, with everyday food from around the world concocted with passion and the finest locally-sourced ingredients. If your mama was from Mexico, she’d make you tacos. If she was from India, she’d make you curry. If she was from the USA, she’d make you killer mac n’ cheese. If Christiaan was your mama, he’d make you all of the above, better than your mom could make it.. Henni’s is open for lunch and dinner Monday-Friday and for dinner only on Saturday, with small plates from $4-9 and big plates from $14-18 and a killer happy hour. We’re giving away gift certificates this week, and then we’ve got a treasure hunt for you all next month. Stay tuned! I think Christiaan is rad, and I think his food is delicious, so cross the bridge (unless you’re in WA already), and go check out Henni’s.

Now, your forecast:

In the good news department, there are more marine clouds, more gradient, and more wind than the models predicted last night. The gradient is at .12 at 7:45am, and that’s enough for 20 or so at the Hatch already. There is a system expected to push in today, and when that happens, we usually see the big die-off in the Corridor. So, if you want the strongest wind, get it at the Hatch (23-26) this morning before the action shifts to Stevenson. When that happens, we’ll still have gusty upper teens to low twenties near Hood River and out as far east as Maryhill.

Low pressure holds off the coast tomorrow for a pretty light day through the Gorge. We’ll see light wind in the morning, 13-15 midday and 17-19 in the afternoon, with the strongest wind from Stevenson to Hood River.


The Clymb: free membership.
Access to super cheap gear including Trew, Zeal, Sierra Designs, and many more.

Coming up on Thursday, high pressure finally starts building in the Pacific, setting up a more classic day on the water. We’ll see 17-20 in the morning with 22-24 in the afternoon with the strongest wind near Hood River in the morning and at Rowena and Doug’s in the afternoon.

Coming up towards the end of the week, it’s First Friday in Hood River, there’s a standup paddle race this weekend, the Double Damned sailboat race takes place on Saturday, and there’s that Dirty Fingers Bike Repair campout at the Oakridge Super D on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

Finally, the rivers continue to drop. The White Salmon is at 3 feet, still too high for the raft companies to run Husum Falls, and still too high for the Cave Wave, but a very fun level for running the BZ to Husum section. The Klickitat is still at a fun level, and way high for this late in the season, at 1570 cfs.
