It’s fall now, and that means it’s time for … more windsurfing and kiting! No, silly. It’s time to think about skiing.
You can get the best Mt. Hood snow forecast right here, all winter long, starting around November 15th. Bookmark this page. Come back for snow!
Random Morning Thoughts
You can blame McCurdy Farms for the late forecast this morning. That said, they do have delicious pears and apples. You can find this lovely fruit on Tucker Road hill, just south of Portland Drive.
Wind guessings, prognosticatings and musings
Not much changing in wind world: The gradient was E .06 at 9am, and that’ll be enough to give us easterlies at 20-23 at Stevenson and Rooster today. The east wind picks up to 23-26 at Stevenson and 26-30 at Rooster tomorrow, and backs off on Saturday.
Looking ahead to early next week at the coast, there’s a long-period 10′ swell coming in. Not sure yet if it’s going to be windy, but the waves should be spectacular.

Plain old weather
Sunny. Lovely. Very nice for the next week or so.
Yes, the dirt is perfect. But with the government reopened, Poachtober is over.
