Still enjoying the sun? Good. Enjoy it for a few more days.

Friday looks sunny. Saturday looks cloudy with a few flurries, with 1-2” of snow Saturday night. Sunday looks cloudy with light flurries. Monday looks dry.

Windsurfing and kiting conditions will be uninteresting today, with light west flow developing late. Tomorrow looks light. Thursday brings easterlies at 15-18. Friday brings easterlies at 24-28.

In events news, this Friday is round two of “Dimwits with Bright Lights.” Come ride mountain bikes (bring lights) with the crazy night riders of Cascade Locks at the EasyCLIMB trail. 6:15. The official email said “bring your weenie to roast at the bonfire.” I think that means bring food and s’mores fixings. It should be a fun time, so if you can stand riding in the chill, make plans to join the crew Friday night.

Have an awesome day today!
