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

I just have to share how lovely it was in The Dalles yesterday. Blue sky. Snow on all the hills. Roads east of town clear of gravel (but icy at the top of Emerson) and perfect for road biking. Your mountain biking report is not so great: There’s snow about 1/3 of the way up Syncline, and what isn’t snowy is muddy. Everything’s about to freeze, as the temp the next few days will be in the upper twenties at night and the low thirties during the day. Next chance for snow? A few flurries may fall Saturday night, but the next best chance for messy weather is on Wednesday.

Gorge weather for the next few days looks partly cloudy today, and foggy/low clouds the next two days. You’ll probably have to go up, east, or west to find sun. Maybe I’ll be wrong, but don’t feel like you’re stuck with clouds.

On Mt. Hood, it’ll be high overcast today. The freezing level will be at the surface, and wind will be light and variable.

Saturday starts off cloudy, becoming clear with low clouds by midday. The freezing level will be at the surface, maybe rising to as much as 500′ in the evening. Wind Saturday will be NW 10-15.

Sunday looks clear and cold, with light north wind. Monday looks cloudy and cold with light west wind.

Have an awesome day today!
