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

Good morning!

Well, this system has certainly dumped way more snow than either NOAA or I predicted, and that’s a good thing! We’ll see more snow today with the snow level around 500’ and W wind at 10-20mph on Mt. Hood. With the snow level that low, the .3-.4” of precipitation should give us 5-6” of additional snow.

Models tomorrow have the snow level at sea level, with anything from a dry day to .25” of moisture on tap. Expect partly cloudy skies on the mountain with occasional flurries and light wind.

Monday monring sees the snow level at 3000’ with an incoming system. The snow level will rise to 5000’ by 4pm. Expect snow in the Gorge with this system as well. Models are all over the place, predicting .4-1.0” of moisture, so let’s call it 5-7” of new snow. Mt. hood wind on Monday will be SW 15-20 early, rising to SW 25-35 by 4pm.

As an early heads up, Tuesday doesn’t look pretty. By Tuesday morning, the snow level will be at 5000’, with SW wind at 30-40, rising to 40-50+ by 7am. By 7am, the snow level will be at 6000-6500’, rising to 7000’ in the evening. Total precip with this system will be .5-1.5”, depending on the storm track. It will fall as wet snow early, becoming rain by 9am.

Have an awesome day today!
