This week’s forecast is brought to you by Cascade Acupuncture Center in Hood River and The Dalles, where the team of 3 acupuncturists (with a whopping 26 years of combined experience) will get you back on the water or trail or horse sooner and better! CAC is credentialed with more than 20 insurance agencies and offers sliding scale treatments and massages so you can spend more money on toys, so you can beat yourself up more and need more acupuncture and massage. =) Until the end of July, bring in 10 cans of food, and get a free Happy Hour acupuncture treatment. Call 541-387-4325 to schedule an appointment. CAC has kindly donated a massage for this week’s giveaway on the email version of this forecast, so somebody out there is going to be one happy Gorgie.

Now, your forecast:

First off, thank you to everyone who has emailed me about Subaru dealers and thank you to everyone who answered yesterday’s survey. I am clearly going to have to do a better job of saying “Dick Hannah Subaru” on the snowphone. Not enough of you think it’s hot. 😉

When I looked at the models yesterday, it looked like the marine push was going to happen pretty early today, but now we’re starting off with a light east gradient and it looks like we won’t see the wind pick up until later in the day. We should still see 15-18 late this afternoon from Stevenson to Hood River with less wind further east. If you want it, Stevenson will be the first place to have it.

The Clymb: free membership.
Access to super cheap gear including Trew, Zeal, Sierra Designs, and many more.

A strong marine push tonight sets up a windy day tomorrow. With deep clouds in Portland and plenty of sun in the desert, we’ll start off with 22-24 from Hood River to Doug’s, picking up to 25-29 near Hood River by midday and going to 28-33 from Doug’s to Maryhill in the afternoon.

Tuesday’s setup looks pretty good too, with a start in the 17-21 range from Hood River to Mosier, picking up to 24-27 from Hood River to Maryhill in the afternoon.

If the wind sports aren’t your cup of tea, you can get your mellow on tomorrow evening at Wilson Park in Hood River with free Tai Chi starting at 5:30. And if that’s a little too mellow, join the Mountain View cycles crew for the Alternative Ride. It’s still pretty mellow, with a no-spandex, no clipless pedals, 14-mile cruise to Mosier and back with a very long stop at the Thirsty Woman. Helmets and some sort of lights are required for this ride. The only not-mellow part of this ride is the beer drinking, so please be over 21 if you’re coming along.

Finally, the river levels: The White Salmon’s at 3.4 feet and the Klickitat’s at 1680 cfs.
Have an awesome day today!
