Today looks rather gusty, with light wind in the morning and 17-20 this afternoon east of Hood River. Tomorrow looks pretty good, with 17-21 early from Hood River to Mosier, picking up to 24-28 from Hood River to Maryhill in the afternoon. At this point, Saturday looks wind, at least in the morning before high pressure builds in, with 21-23 near Hood River in the morning.
It looks like the Post and Pint will be canceled tonight, but I’m sure Mitchell would love to commiserate with you over a beer starting at 5pm at the shop. Coming up Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the Skylight Theater in Hood River shows the Banff Mountain Film Festival. If for some reason that doesn’t work for you the BMFF shows in Portland tonight.
Have an awesome day today!
