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

Good morning!

At least it’s a beautiful start to the day, with another gorgeous lenticular cloudy on the top of Mt. Hood! The freezing level this morning is somewhere way up high around 8000’. That will drop to 5000’ by 1pm and further fall to 1500’ by 7pm, making for some interesting post-frontal wind. We’ll see .6” of precip between noon and 10pm. Call it .4” of r**n and 2” of wet snow. Winds will be SW 30-40 early, picking up to WSW 40-50 by 1pm and going to a messy NW 40-50 by 7pm.

Tomorrow looks dry with the freezing level at 1000’ early and NW wind at 20-25. The wind will fade during the day, and the freezing level will rise to around 6000’.

Tuesday starts off dry and clear, with high clouds moving in late in the day and the freezing level around 2000’. The wind will be light early, picking up to W 20-25 by 1pm. Snow moves in overnight for .3” water value for 2-3” of new snow.

On Wednesday, we’ll see NW wind at 30-40 to start, swinging around to N and then strong E wind through Thursday, meaning we’ll have to watch for high winds on the slopes. At this point, the weather looks dry from Wednesday through next weekend.

If you are a windsurfer or kiter looking for wind, you’ll find W 24-28 in the desert this afternoon. You’ll find E 22-24 tomorrow morning at Stevenson and Rooster. Tuesday morning brings E 15-18, quickly switching to W 22-24 by 1pm. Expect big, big easterlies on Thursday.

Have an awesome day today!
