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

Good morning,

First off, please help me out today. Go to this link, scroll over the photo, and click the green thumbs up. It has to happen today. I just found out. Thank you!

Oh wow what a day it’ll be! Everyone enjoy the gorgeous weather today. It’s going to be a perfect day to get out on a bike. Or work in the garden. Last frost day for Hood River proper was April 20th, and I’m not seeing any frost in the next week, at least at city level. I’m going for it with the tomatoes this afternoon.

Don’t tire yourself out too much. Tonight at Columbia Center for the Arts, it’s Andrew Shurka, explorer extraordinaire. You don’t want to miss this one. It’s armchair traveling at its best! 7pm. $10. Well worth it.

In the meantime, there’s the Whoopdee/Post work party this morning. Meet at 8:30am at 10 Speed Roastery. There’s the Trout Lake run, benefiting the Trout Lake School. There’s annual cleanup day at the Discovery Center in The Dalles (this one earns you free lunch and movie tickets). Tomorrow is a CGORA moto ride at Pine Mont, and it’s the annual weeding party at the Hood River Waterfront Park. If you’d like to adopt a plot, there are still some available.

Enough events. Weather. It’s going to be perfect. Warm and sunny. Finally!

On Mt. Hood: The freezing level will be 11,000′ all day, with SW wind at 15-25. Tomorrow: 12,000′, SW wind at 10-15. Monday: 12,000′, SW 10-15, possibly a few showers and/or thunderstorms Monday afternoon into Monday night. Tuesday, partly cloudy, 11,000′ and SW wind at 15-20.

In the Gorge: Today: light east wind. Tomorrow: light east wind. Monday: probably more wind than models predict. West at 10-15 early and 22-26 near Hood River in the afternoon.

Have a great day today!
