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

Good morning!

More moisture came in overnight than I expected, giving the mountains a couple inches of new snow by this morning. That’s good news, for sure. Right now (9am) it’s just above freezing, but it’s still snowing. We’ll see the snow level drop to 3500’ by 10am, and then rise back to 6000’ by 1pm and 7500’ by 7pm. Precip of some sort continues through 4pm, for .2-.3” water value (WV). That should be snow this morning, but will likely switch to rain midday at lower ski area elevations. Expect another 1-2” of snow today with light rain tonight. Wind will be SW 20-25 for much of the day, dropping to SW 10-15 this evening.

We’ll see .3” WV of rain Wednesday night into Thursday morning. Skies will be cloudy through 10am, clearing after that. The snow level will be 7500’ at 1am Thursday, dropping to 6500’ at 4am, rising to 8000’ by 10am and 10,000’ by 1pm. Wind will be SW at 20-25 early, pickng up to SW 25-30 early afternoon.

We’ll have high clouds Friday morning, becoming cloudy, with precip starting around 10am. The snow level will be 8000’ at 4am, 6500’ at 7am, 6000’ at 10am, and 4000’ by 10pm. We’ll see light rain during the day, starting around 10am, switching to snow late in the evening, for .1-.2” WV during the day and another .3” between 4pm Friday and 4pm Saturday. That should give us 2” or snow of new snow by Saturday morning.

Saturday starts off cloudy, becoming clear by midday. The snow level will be 2000’ early, dropping to 1000’ by 10am. Wind will be SW 25-30 early, swinging to W 20ish by mid-morning.

At this point, it looks like Sunday starts off dry, with heavy snow hitting sometime early afternoon.

Have a great day today!
