Mt. Hood Weather Forecast
Full-on sunshine is the plan for all of Saturday. Intermittent high clouds move in and out for the next few days. Dry, warm weather sticks around through the end of next week. After that? Probably colder and wetter as the pattern changes, but way too soon to know any details.
Saturday will be sunny all day. The free air freezing level (FAF) will be 11,000. Temps on the slopes start in the low 40’s and rise to 50 or higher. Wind: NE 10-20 in the morning, NE 5-10 in the afternoon, and NE 10-15 after midnight.
Sunday will be sunny in the morning and high overcast later. Temps will be near 50 all day falling to the low 40’s overnight with the free air freezing level around 11,000′. Wind: NE 10-15 in the morning, WNW 15-20 in the afternoon, and NW 20-25 overnight. Monday will be clear and then partially high overcast. Temps will be in the low 40’s all day with the free air freezing level at 8000′ early and 10,000′ in the afternoon. Wind: NW 20-25 in the morning, NW 10-15 in the afternoon, and light/variable overnight. That’s pretty much the weather through Thursday, at least. Have fun in the sun!
Note on wind speeds. Different wind directions are experienced in different ways on Mt. Hood. For example, west wind at 50mph will hit the slopes and exposed ridges at W 50. SW 50 may hit the ridges at SW 50, but will likely only be SW 20 below tree line. Hence the ranges for wind. Depends where you are on the mountain. Hopefully that helps clarify.

FREEZE-THAW ALERT: if you notice that temps were below freezing last night and will be above freezing today, don’t ride any trail that’s not under a tree canopy. If you do so, you WILL do significant damage. DON’T DO IT! Plentiful rain recently means most tree-covered trails are muddy. Please don’t ride them either. If you do, you’ll be doing significant and possibly permanent damage. No really, please don’t. There are lots of gravel roads and lots of pavement you can ride instead. Enjoy!
Please let me know about events. I often only hear about them if you folx let me know!
