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

Good morning,

I had a lovely day off yesterday. I rode my bike, I played in my garden, I finished my taxes, and best of all, I didn’t break my last backup computer!

Today starts off cloudy on Mt. Hood, with snow starting by 11am. We’ll see the snow level at 2000’ with SW wind at 10-15, rising to W 20 in the afternoon. Total precip will be .2-.3” water value by 5pm, for 2-3” of new snow, followed by another .2-.3” WV overnight, for 2-3” more by Thursday morning.

We’ll see flurries mixed with sunbreaks all day Thursday, for .1-.2” WV or a couple inches of new snow. The snow level will be around 1500’ with NW wind at 15-20.

Friday looks partly cloudy and cold, with the freezing level at 500’ in the morning, rising in the afternoon, with the eventual freezing level depending a lot on how much sun we see. Wind will be NW 15-20. No measurable precip.

Saturday looks clear and sunny, with the possibility of some high clouds streaming in from a low pressure system off the coast. The freezing level will be 1000’ early, rising to 2500’ in the afternoon and 4500’ in the evening. Wind will be E/SE/S at 15-20, rising to 25-30 in the afternoon. No precip.

The Gorge wind forecast contains 17-19mph near Hood River this afternoon with 22-25 in the eastern Gorge. Tomorrow brings 18-21 near Hood River. Friday looks like gusty 15-18 near Hood River. Saturday brings strong east wind in the afternoon.

Tonight at Discover Bikes, it’s the family-friendly Indoor Enduro Pumptrack race from 6-8pm. Coming up on Saturday, Skibowl hosts the King and Queen of the mountain races. Costumes are not mandatory, but they are highly encouraged.

Have an awesome day today!
