Gorge Wind Forecast
It’s Sunday morning, and there’s not much to talk about here! As a matter of fact, there’s not much to talk about this week. The wind is going to be light most days. That allows your friendly local forecaster to take a few days off and get some exercise instead of forecasting!
Let’s look at Sunday morning. Pressures are 29.91/29/97/30.00 for 0.06/0.03. That’s not much gradient to drive the easterlies, and indeed, the numbers on the river agree: the day is starting in the teens. If that’s enough for you, move fast. The wind drops to 10-15 from Rooster to Viento by late morning and drops below 10mph this afternoon, perhaps with the exception of Stevenson (10-13mph). River flow readings are 62-83kcfs, river temp is 66F, and high temp forecast is 82F.
Monday will be calm with the exception of 10mph east wind near Stevenson in the morning. High temp: 83F. Tuesday will be calm until late afternoon. Westerlies at 10-13mph are forecast near Stevenson late in the day. High temp: 84F. Models are not agreeing on Wednesday’s forecast. If you believe the deterministic GFS, we’ll have westerlies at 17-21 from Stevenson to Mosier. Cross your fingers, because there’s no sign of wind for the latter half of next week. Wow. Great weather for road biking, for sure!
