We’re heading into a few days of light wind weather, so if you’ve been waiting for the breeze to shut off, get ready. Today’s the last day of west wind, and that’s lucky, because the windsurfing and standup blowouts are this weekend. I talked to Scotia Bauer last night, and she says the races are on for today. If you want to race, head to Bob’s Beach in Stevenson. Registration starts at 8:30, and you need to be there even if you’re doing the SUP race from Viento.
It looks like we’ll see westerlies in the 5-10 range this morning from Stevenson to Mosier, picking up to 13-15 midday, and holding through the evening. The wind will be light east of Rowena.
Coming up tomorrow, we’ll see high pressure building over the Cascades, giving us light west wind, at best 10-15mph, but more likely 5-10 or nothing at all. On Monday, a low pressure system sets up off the coast, and the wind switches to light easterlies.
If you’re looking for biking today, the 44 road trails are in great shape. Knebal, 8mile and Bottle Prarie are open. Surveyor’s has about 25 trees down on section out of the Dog River trailhead, and Fifteenmile is covered in downed trees. High Prarie is still covered in snow. And finally in biking news, the Post Canyon work party for today has been cancelled.
In river news, the White Salmon has dropped to 4.1 feet, the Hood is at 4.4 feet, and the Klickitat is at a very fun 2750 cfs.
Have an awesome day today!
