7.24 Forecast

The organizers of the US Windsurfing Nationals must have done something to please Mother Nature. 30+ yesterday gives way to more westerlies today and tomorrow. Come down to the Event Site and check out the racing today!

Another marine push this morning set up an early gradient of .11. That was enough to drive early morning winds into the low twenties in the Corridor. High pressure off the coast combines with a cutoff low in the desert to drive winds in the 23-27 range today. Since the marine deck will likely burn off earlier, there’s going to be a midday lull, followed by an afternoon build from Mosier out to Maryhill in the 24-27 range.

That cutoff low hangs in the desert tomorrow and high pressure stays off the coast for another west wind day in the Gorge. There won’t be much marine deck, but I think we’ll still see light westerlies tomorrow morning building to 17-21 by mid afternoon.

High pressure holds off the coast on Sunday as low pressure stays parked in the desert. Despite near-100 degree temps, we’ll still see a breeze in the gorge. Light west winds Sunday morning give way to 19-22 Sunday afternoon.

If you’re looking for something else to do, don’t forget about the Hood River County Fair. My official cherry supplier, Denise, says that nothing beats the view of Mt. Hood from the top of the Ferris Wheel in the evening. Go check it out!

And whatever you do today, have an awesome day!
