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

Good morning!

So far this morning it’s all good on the Hood with no rain and a moderate breeze blowing across the slopes. Sadly, that won’t be the case all day. The snow level will be 7500’ early, dropping to 7000’ by 10am, 6000’ by 4pm and 5500’ by 10pm. We’ll see moderate rain starting around 10am, becoming heavy by 1pm. It looks like the rain will switch to snow between 4pm and 9pm… not sure exactly what time. Before the switch, we’ll see .8-1.0” rain on Mt. Hood. After that, we’ll see another .5” WV that will fall as snow, for 3-4” of new by Monday morning. Wind today will be SW 40-50 early, possibly dropping a bit midday (but just a bit), switching to WSW 40ish around 4pm and going to WNW 30-35+ late evening.

Tomorrow starts off with snow flurries, becoming partly cloudy for less than 2” of new during the day. The snow level will be 2500’ early, falling to 1500’ by 7am and falling to 1000’ by 10am and holding for the rest of the day. Wind will be a troublesome WNW 35+ early, holding through midday and slowly backing off to W 15-20 by 4pm.

Tuesday sees a few light flurries during the day interspersed with partly cloudy to cloudy skies. The snow level will be 1500’ early, rising to 2000’ in the afternoon. Heavier snowfall starts around 7pm, for .7” WV for 7-8” of new snow by Wednesday morning. The wind on Tuesday will be WSW 30 in the morning, going to WSW 30-40 in the afternoon with stronger wind overnight.

Wednesday morning sees new snow on the ground with flurries in the morning and partly cloudy skies by afternoon. The freezing level will be 3500’ early, rising to 7000’ in the afternoon. Wind will be W 40ish at 4am, dropping to W 30-35 at 7am and falling to W 20ish by 1pm.

The extended forecast after Wednesday looks fairly dry and warm on Mt. Hood.

Have a great day today!
