Good morning!

This forecast is brought to you by Cascade Acupuncture Center, where you can get your sports injuries treated with an ancient, safe, effective and holistic therapy. Little needles… I wonder what they used before snazzy manufactured acupuncture needles came out?

I am wondering if CAC can get rid of the poison oak that’s all over my face and scattered about the rest of my body? I recommend not bushwacking along the White Salmon river!

Yesterday was a great day on the water, with westerlies blowing all the way from Stevenson to Arlington. The gradients are weaker this morning, with .06 from Portland to The Dalles, and the clouds are going to burn off earlier, so the wind is going to be pretty light today. Best chance for west winds today will be from Stevenson down to the Hatchery, with 15-19 pretty likely by midday, and a very slight chance of low twenties late in the afternoon.

Wednesday starts off light, as low pressure sits off the Oregon coast, squashing gradients. As the system moves east, winds pick up a bit through the Gorge. Watch for 15-18 Wednesday evening, from Stevenson down to Mosier.

The early model runs for Thursday show a bit more wind as a low pressure trough shifts east, for mid twenties through the Gorge.

If you’re looking for something to do after work tonight, it’s Big Winds’ ladies’ standup paddle night at The Event Site, weather permitting. There are free lessons and free demos, so if you’re a gal, come on down and check it out! To find out if it’s on, check big winds’ website after 4:30 this afternoon. Also tonight is the Tuesday night Tri, at the Event Site at 6pm. That’s a 500 yard swim, 8 mile bike and 2 mile run!

If you’re looking ahead to the weekend, there’s a lot going on. Windfest, with $10 poleboarding demos, takes place at the Event Site, and there’s a swap meet on Sunday, there’s a partial lunar eclipse on Saturday. If you’re a nutty windsurfer, the blowout is either Saturday or Sunday…

Boaters, the Hood’s at 3.9 feet, the White Salmon’s just below 3.5 feet and the Klickitat’s at 2000 cfs.

Whatever you do today, have an awesome day!

    Try wiping suspected areas with some kind of solvent that is not too bad on skin ; rubbing alcohol, alcohol based hand cleaner etc.; to quickly remove the poisin oak oil; I have done this even after I felt the tingly itchy feeling but finding nothing there. It seems to work . I don’t know how it would do after you have rash.
    Thanks for your forcasts and guidance to gorge fun.
