Thank you for using this forecast! Your donations keep this forecast going – despite rumors to the contrary, nobody pays me to write this and post it. This forecast started as a way for me to find better windsurfing conditions. It morphed into a way for me to find better skiing in the winter. Seemed silly to keep that information to myself, so it’s here for you (almost) every day. Make a $12 or larger donation, and you’re on the email list for a year. No dealing with the twice-yearly pledge drive. Sometimes I even have prizes to give away from the email list sponsors. Thank you again for your support! Enjoy the snow and wind and sun!

Good morning,

Well, sometimes you just have to take a day off. Especially when the weather turns warm and the birds are singing and the garden is calling. Oh, and the weather is unchanging… that’s a great time to take a day off if you’re a weather forecaster!

We’ll see a couple of changes in the weather over the next couple of days. The sky will clear, and the mercury will climb. That will make for nice spring skiing on the mountain and just plain nice weather in the valleys, with temps approaching 70 degrees. Hooray!

In Gorge weather, we’ll see partly cloudy sky today, becoming clear in the afternoon. Temps will be in the upper 40’s early and mid 60’s this afternoon with light wind. Tomorrow looks sunny, with temps in the mid-40’s early and upper 60’s in the afternoon. Wind will be east 25-29 at Stevenson and Rooster and E 5-8 in the afternoon elsewhere. Sunday looks sunny with temps near 50 in the morning and in the upper 60’s in the afternoon with light east wind. If you don’t have a road bike, now would be a great time to get one!

Up on Mt. Hood, it’s going to be a spring slushfest this weekend. Today starts off cloudy with a few sprinkles possible (there were some rain showers overnight). The snow level will be 5500′ early, rising to 6000′ in the afternoon as the sky clears. Wind will be light, out of the SW.

Saturday sees clear sky over Mt. Hood. The freezing level will jump to 10,000′ in the morning and 12,000′ in the afternoon. Wind will be light and variable. Sunday looks very similar to Saturday, with light and variable wind becoming E at 5-15 by midday. Monday looks clear, with the freezing level at 8000′ and light and variable wind.

As for events, there’s not much on the calendar this weekend, unless I missed stuff, in which case you guys should send me a note telling me what’s going on! Have a great weekend, and enjoy the warm and sunny weather!

Have an awesome day today!
