8/3 Forecast

This week’s forecast is brought to you by food. Specifically, Henni’s food. Henni’s Bar and Grill in White Salmon will feed you well, with everyday food from around the world concocted with passion and the finest locally-sourced ingredients. If your mama was from Mexico, she’d make you tacos. If she was from India, she’d make you curry. If she was from the USA, she’d make you killer mac n’ cheese. If Christiaan was your mama, he’d make you all of the above, better than your mom could make it.. Henni’s is open for lunch and dinner Monday-Friday and for dinner only on Saturday, with small plates from $4-9 and big plates from $14-18 and a killer happy hour. We’re giving away gift certificates this week, and then we’ve got a treasure hunt for you all next month. Stay tuned! I think Christiaan is rad, and I think his food is delicious, so cross the bridge (unless you’re in WA already), and go check out Henni’s.

Now, your forecast:

We have a light start to the wind this morning with less clouds in Portland and south flow overhead. By afternoon, the wind should pick up to 15-18 from Stevenson to Mosier, with a chance of clouds from the south flow.

Tomorrow starts with 15-18 near Hood River, and then as the low pressure system tries to push onshore, the wind picks up to 22-24 at Stevenson and east of Hood River, filling in all the way to Arlington.

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

We’ll finally see a static weather setup on Friday, which generally brings steadier wind. We’ll have 20-23 first thing in the morning at the Hatchery, filling in to 23-27 all the way from Stevenson to Doug’s in the afternoon. At this point, it’s looking like west wind will blow this weekend too, with low teens on Saturday and upper teens to low twenties on Sunday.

If you’re looking for stuff to do tonight, there’s the Kayak Shed’s paddle meeting at 5:30 at Husum, there are sailboat races from the Hood River Marina, and there’s the girls-only Post and Pinot ride leaving Dirty Fingers Bike Repair at 5:30. Tomorrow’s the co-ed Post and Pint ride and the last standup paddle race of the bump and glide series, and Friday is First Friday in Hood River.

If you’re waiting for the weekend, there’s the Double Damned sailboat race, the Oakridge Super D, the Dirty Fingers Campout, and at Jackson Park on Saturday night, the movie Second Chances on the big screen, brought to you by Hood River Community Ed.

Have an awesome day today!
