8/6 Forecast

Posted by

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, the last a.m. forecast you’re going to get for a few days, because I’m taking a day off.

We’re going to see another windy day on the Columbia today, and if you’ll be out on the river, you’ll have some competition from the sailboats doing the double damned race from Cascade Locks to Stevenson. Best of luck to all the racers today!

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

It’s quite early as I write this, and still pitch black out. I have no idea where the cloud line is at, but it’s cold and breezy in Hood River and that’s a good sign for wind. The wind this morning will be in the 18-22 range from the Hatchery to Mosier, picking up to 24-28 from Stevenson to Mosier by midday. When afternoon rolls around, the wind will pick up to 24-28 out near Doug’s and Rowena, with wind in the eastern Gorge in the upper teens.

We’ll see even less low clouds tomorrow morning, and Portland should clear out pretty early, so we’ll have a little less wind. We’ll start off with 16-19, building to 21-24, with the strongest wind from Stevenson to Hood River early, shifting to Doug’s and Rowena late.

Monday looks a lot like Sunday, with minimal low clouds in the morning giving us15-18 early and 19-23 in the afternoon, with the strongest wind in the morning happening near Hood River and the strongest wind late near The Dalles.

In events, as you’ve been hearing all week, it’s the Oakridge Super D, along with Mitchell from Dirty Fingers’ birthday tomorrow. If you don’t want to drive three hours, stick around here and catch the movie in the Park tonight starting at dusk.

Have an awesome day today!
