A finicky front crossed Oregon Last night. Morning clouds were shading the river all the way to The Dalles, and morning gradients were at .07. The low teens start builds to 23-26 later on, with Doug’s and Maryhill being the windiest spots today. Speaking of doug’s, if you are planning on using the Lyle sandbar for kiteboarding or anything else, don’t. The railroad police are issuing thousand-dollar tickets. This is no urban legend. This is the real deal. Don’t cross the tracks in Lyle.
High pressure builds off the coast tomorrow driving gorge westerlies and coast northerlies. We’ll start off tomorrow with corridor winds in the low twenties or so, with a midday build into the 23-27 range. It’s also going to be windy at the coast tomorrow with a 9 foot swell. Sounds like a perfect beach day to me!
The weekend is looking windy at this point, however impossible that may be on Windfest weekend.
Now, the weekend activity list. On Saturday we’ve got the Hood River Super D, Windfest, Discover bike’s 8am bike rides and the Dirty Fingers Ladyfinger ride. There’s also a mountain bike work party at Cook Meadows. Sunday brings Windfest, the Bionicon bikes demo and a CGWA swap meet.
Speaking of bikes, today is the Dirty Fingers Post and Pint Super-D shuttle preview. Meet at Dirty Fingesr at 5:30.
