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

Good morning,

First off, a very, very big thank you to everyone who came to the showing of Pedal Driven at Springhouse Cellars on Thursday night. As you know, this was a benefit for the Hood River Area Trail Stewards. We had about 150 show up, and they were a very generous 150. We raised $2250 for our trailbuilding fund. Wow. Incredible. Never again will we have to beg and scrounge for money to build bridges, to print maps, to put together another event. Thank you all. And thank you to everyone who has showed up to work parties. To all you women: there’s a girls-only work party next week, midweek. Please email me if you’re interested. Remember, HRATS is a 501(c)(3), so you can always make a tax-deductible contribution to them.

Okay, that said, on to events. Today there’s free tai chi from 10-noon at the Hood River Middle School courtyard to celebrate world Tai Chi day. Also today, the Blossom Boogie road race, supporting Mid-Valley Elementary. Tomorrow, there’s the Cherry Blossom Duathlon in The Dalles and a 35-40 mile CGORA dirt bike ride out of Pine Mont.

If you like surf movies, Monday is the night for you, as the movie Splinters plays at the Skylight Theatre at 6pm. It’s not often that good surf movie comes out, so you’ll want to be there for this one. Plus, it’s a benefit for Surfrider foundation, protecting your beaches and surf breaks!

For your snow forecast, today starts off with the snow level around 5000′, rising to 7500′ this afternoon. I don’t know what’s up with this fog, but it’s here. Models actually show clouds down low through 2pm when skies should pretty much clear up. Total precip today will be less than .1”. Wind will be SW 10-15.

Tomorrow looks mostly clear with a few high cloudy. The freezing level will be 6000′ early, rising to 9-10,000′ in the afternoon. Wind will be SW 5-10 in the morning, going to W 15-20 in the afternoon

Monday, because it’s employee ski day, looks rather nasty. We’ll see rain showers starting around 5am, becoming heavier rain by 8am and continuing through… well… through employee ski day. The freezing level will be 6500′ or higher all day. Wind will be WSW 30-35 early, swinging to W 40-45 by noon. Total precip during the day Monday will be .25-.50”.

Have an awesome day today!
