9/29 forecast

It’s looking like fall is here in the Gorge with sprinkles and a chilly, cloudy morning. We have a light west start this morning as the wind machine waits for an approaching front. That front should hit around midday, upping gradients.

Like yesterday’s wind, today’s is going to be gusty and unreliable, but at this time of year, some wind is better than no wind at all. We’ll see 22-26 this afternoon, east of the low clouds with gusty low teens under the clouds.. With showers predicted as far east as The Dalles today, best winds are going to be from Avery out to Arlington.

Tomorrow’s wind looks a little steadier . There are still going to be plenty of clouds in the central Gorge, so steadiest winds tomorrow will be from Doug’s out to Arlington. 24-28 is a pretty reasonable call tomorrow out in the desert.

At this point, it looks like we’ll still have west winds on Thursday, but it’s a little early to make a call on wind strength.

In other news, snow levels tonight are going to be down around 4000 feet tonight and tomorrow, giving the mountains the second shot of snow for the season. That’s going to be low enough for awesome photo ops and snow on the highest mountain bike trails.

Happening today, tomorrow and Thursday is another round of free Crossfit workouts at Children’s park in Hood River For more info, check out crossfithoodriver.com.
