This week’s forecast is brought to you by Flow Yoga on 3rd Street in downtown Hood River. With all this rain, workout choices are getting limited, but not at Flow. You can choose from 25 fitness/training classes and 32 yoga/meditation classes. Starting November 6th, Flow is offering a 6-week snowsports series that targets your skiing and riding muscles (aka, your powder thighs). It’s going to be a solid workout, lots of fun, but most importantly, it’ll bring you into ski season ready for hours of faceshots (and way less time lying around sore the next day). As an added bonus, the instructor, Jessica is rad. If you’ve never been a Flow member, you can try out a month for just $49. One of you will win a free month membership at the end of this week!
This is it, everyone. This is your last day to enjoy evening light, such as it is with the low-level inversion and low-quality air this morning. Tonight we turn the clocks back.
There isn’t really much to talk about today, but I’d feel bad not posting something
So, your next chance for windsurfing or kiting is tomorrow in the desert, starting around midday. I think 20-25 is a reasonable, conservative call, but there’s a slight chance of gusty, cold upper twenties for short periods of time.
If you’re looking for new snow in the mountains, you’re going to have to wait until Sunday night. Most of tomorrow’s precipitation will fall as rain below 6-7,000ft. However, starting Sunday night and continuing into Tuesday, we’ll see a total of 18-24” above 4000 feet, with snow levels dropping to near 3000 feet on Tuesday.
The long-range forecast is all over the place. Check out Fox 12’s Mark Nelsen’s weather blog here. What that means is that I can’t tell you when the mountain will open. All I can do is cross my fingers. I suggest you join me.
In paddling world, the White Salmon is right around 2 feet right now. It, and the Hood, should come up quite a bit by tomorrow. I’m not sure we’ll see the Hood come over 4 feet, but you never know…
The mountain biking is pretty good right now. Stay off the lowest sections of Post Canyon, and you’re good to go!
Have an awesome day today!
