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

I hope you all like sun. We’ll see sun on Mt. Hood today with N wind at 20-30 early, fading to 15-20 in the afternoon. The free air freezing level (FAF) will be 5000’ early, rising to 6500’ in the afternoon.

Tomorrow looks sunny, with N wind at 5-10 early, going to NW 10-15 in the afternoon. The FAF will be 9000’.

Wednesday will be partly cloudy as a system swings along the coast. Mt. Hood wind will be NW 20-25 early, going to NW 10-15 in the afternoon. The FAF will be 8500’ early, going to 6500’ in the afternoon.

Models are finally showing some hint of this high pressure system dissipating early next week. Until then, pray for snow.

If you’re looking for wind in the Gorge, there’s nothing spectacular on the way. We’ll see easterlies today at 18-21, westerlies tomorrow and Wednesday at 17-20 and easterlies on Thursday at 15-18.

Have an awesome day today!
