Good morning!

If you’re in the Gorge, you have the distinct pleasure of looking out your window this morning and seeing the Nothing, the gray gloom of clouds that develops from an inversion layer. I think I mentioned a while back that Jimmy from 3 Rivers starts 241 steak night after the first inversion, and someone mentioned to me the other day that steak night is up and running for the year. That gives you something to do tomorrow evening. Steak night date night, right?

In the mountains for the next three days, we won’t see much in the way of snow. Today looks dry, with partly cloudy conditions and wind at W 5-10 picking up to SW 15-20 late afternoon. The snow level will be 2000’ early, rising to 5500’ in the afternoon. We’ll see a bit of snow mixed with rain or wet snow above 5000’ tonight, for maybe an inch of accumulation.

The snow level will be at 6000’ Wednesday morning, with flurries through 7am or so. The snow level rises to 8500’ in the afternoon with skies becoming partly cloudy to clear. Windspeeds Wednesday will be SSW 20-25 early, fading to SSW 10-15 in the afternoon.

On Thursday, we’ll see sunny skies in the mountains with the free air freezing level around 9000’ and wind at SW 5-10. Next chance for significant snow accumulation is Saturday. Chance of Meadows/Skibowl opening in the next 10 days: Less than 10%.

Gorge winds will be easterly for the next three days. We’ll see E 15-20 today at Rooster Rock and then E 22-25 tomorrow and Thursday from Stevenson to Rooster.

In other news, there’s Kayak Polo at the Hood River Pool tonight at 8pm followed by Kayakers Drinking at the British Pub at 10pm. Thursday from 7-8pm is a pool session for kayakers. $3 if you live in the pool district.
