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

Good morning,

It’s going to be a lovely day up here on Mt. Hood. There are just a few low clouds lingering around 5000’, and it’s clear skies above. We’ll see partly cloudy skies with a few flurries possible today, especially in the afternoon. The snow level will be around 1000’ this morning, rising a bit in the afternoon with the strong March sun. Wind will be NW 10-15 early, W 10 midday and SW 10 in the evening. No significant precip.

Tomorrow looks clear and sunny. The freezing level will be 1500’ early, 5000’ around 8am and 4000’ in the afternoon. Wind will be S 15-20 early, SE 20 midday and SW 15-20 in the afternoon.

Sunday starts off cloudy, with a few flurries during the day, becoming partly cloudy late. The snow level will be 6000’ at 2am, 4500’ mid-morning and 6000’ from 11am through the rest of the day. Yeah, I know it’s borderline, but let’s just stick with wet snow and call it good. Wind will be S/SE 20-30 early and SW 20-25 for the rest of the day.

Monday brings more flurries with the snow level at 4500’ and SW wind at 15-20.

The Gorge wind situation is 15-18 today from Hood River eastward, east 30 near Stevenson and Rooster on Saturday, and no wind on Sunday and Monday.

Events include the King and Queen of the Mountain at Skibowl on Saturday and a CGORA dirt bike ride / trail cleanup party at Pine Mont on Sunday.

Have a great day today!
