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

Good morning,

Well, it’s raining again on Mt. Hood. The freezing level is around 7500′. It’ll rise to 9000′ this afternoon. Wind will be W 30-40, dropping to 20-30 in the afternoon. It’ll rain all morning, with .1-.3” total precip, ending by 2-5pm. Tomorrow, Sunday and Monday look sunny on Mt. Hood. The freezing level will be 10,000′ Saturday with SW wind at 15-25. Sunday and Monday see the freezing level at 12,000′ with SW wind at 10-15.

In the wind forecast, today brings afternoon westerlies at 10-15 near Hood River, probably filling in out east also. Tomorrow brings east wind at 10-15 and Sunday brings east wind at 15-18.

Basically, the weekend looks sunny and warm, with highs nearing 70 degrees. It’s going to be perfect weather for road biking and mountain biking.

Speaking of mountain biking, please consider helping out with the Whoopdee work party tomorrow (some work happening in Post Canyon too). We’re sorely lacking in trails right now, and it will be awesome to have a brand new trail. Meet at 10 Speed Roastery (13th and State) tomorrow morning. Bring water and snacks, although there will be a few bagels and cream cheese from HR Bagels and Rosauers.

In other events, tonight is a Dimwits ride at the Cascade Locks EasyCLIMB trail. Team Tarkio presents a kayaking slide show at the Pint Shack. Tomorrow is the Trout Lake Run (a race), benefiting the Trout Lake School. In big, cool event news, National Geographic explorer Andrew Shurka will be at Columbia Center for the Arts tomorrow night presenting on his travels in the Yukon.

On Sunday, the Columbia Gorge Offroad Association has a moto ride at Pinemont. It’s also Earth Day, and HR’s Earth Day tradition is the annual weeding party at the Waterfront Park. Be there.

Wow. That’s a lot of stuff going on. Have a great day.

Have a great day today!
