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

Good morning!

Well, it’s raining in the mountains again. We’ll see 3-5” of rain today. The snow level will be 6000’ early, rising to 7500’ during the day and dropping back down to 6000’ in the afternoon. The wind will be SW 35-40 early, rising to SW 40-60 and going to W 45-50 in the evening.

The snow level drops briefly to 4000’ tomorrow morning and holds around 5000’ through 4pm before rising to 7500’ by 7pm. The precipitation picture gets a little complicated… it’ll be a mix of heavy rain and snow before 4am, for 1.5” water value, when the precip tapers off. I think we’ll see 3-5” of wet accumulation at 5000’ and more higher up. We’ll see showers/flurries during the day, before heavy rain kicks back in overnight, for another 2” of rain.

On Friday, the snow level goes from 5500’ at 4am, to 3500’ at 7am and keeps falling to 1000’ by 7pm. So, Thursday’s heavy rain switches to snow early Friday morning, and then we get 1.5-2” of water value for 10-16” of new snow during the day, depending on when it switches over.

We’ll probably see another 4-6” of new snow Friday night, leading into a bluebird day on Saturday.

Sunday looks rainy.

Have an awesome day!
