Mt. Hood Snow Forecast – 5000′
4a-8a 8a-12p 12p-4p 4p-8p 8p-4a

If you’re a windsurfer or kiter who isn’t afraid of the cold, today is your day. The gradients are at .20/.03 right now, and should shift east. Head east of the clouds today for 30+, or stay in the rain for low twenties. We’ll see leftover wind tomorrow out east at 23-26 with 15-18 under the clouds. Tuesday looks light.

In snow news, we’ll see the snow level around 5500’ today, with west wind at 40-50 on Mt. Hood. We’ll see orographic snow flurries for 1-2” of new snow.

Tomorrow sees the bulk of the moisture head north of us. The snow level will be 4000’ early, falling to 2000’ late in the day. Mt. Hood wind will be W 40-50 early, going to WNW 30-40 in the afternoon. Total snowfall will be 2-3”.

Tuesday starts off dry on Mt. Hood with the snow level around 2000’ and west wind at 20-25. We’ll see an inch or two of new snow during the day. The snow level starts rising in the afternoon ahead of a system packed with subtropical moisture, hitting 4500’ by midnight.

That systems swings onshore Wednesday midday. At this point, the storm looks far enough offshore that we won’t see a true Pineapple Express. However, sadly, it does look like the snow level will climb to 6000-7000’, with an inch of rain on the mountain. Having said that, we’re still quite a few days out, and things could change.

Don’t forget that tomorrow night is fundraiser night for the Meadows avalanche dog program. Everybody’s Brewing, White Salmon, starting at 5pm. Awesome raffle prizes. See you there!

Have an awesome day today!
