Good morning!

This morning brings my not-so-favorite weather to Mt. Hood’s slopes: fog. Hopefully that will burn off and give way to something nicer later on today,. Most likely it will just be cloudy with flurries. The NWRFC is calling for .5-.75” wv today, but I’m not seeing that in other models. I think we’ll see a couple more inches of snow during the day, but that’s about it. The snow level will be around 4000’ all day. At least winds won’t be too bad: SW 20-30 early, falling to S 15-20 midday, and going to W 5-10 late in the evening.

We’ll see more snow flurries all day tomorrow, for an inch or two during the day. The snow level will be at 2000’ early, rising to 3000’ by 4pm. Winds will be light, at W 10-15 in the morning and W 15-20 by 4pm. Heavier snowfall starts tomorrow night around 10pm for 3-4” of new overnight.

Heavy snowfall continues Saturday morning for another .5” WV during the day, for 4-5” of snow between 5am and 5pm, becoming snow flurries overnight. Winds pick up a bit on Saturday: SW 20-25 in the morning building to SW 30-35 mid-afternoon.

Models disagree on snowfall amounts Sunday, probably because they can’t decide if the storm track will hit us or go slightly north (hitting Crystal and Baker instead). We’ll see somewhere between .25-.7” WV on Sunday, for moderate snowfall much of the day, heaviest in the morning, with the snow level around 2000′. Winds Sunday will be SW 20-30 until 4pm, when they’ll switch to W 20-30.

Monday and Tuesday look snowy.

It’s not looking like we’ll see much in the way of Gorge wind for the next few days.

Have a great day today!
