Mt. Hood Weather Forecast

The weather system forecast to bring rain to Mt. Hood today has been delayed until this afternoon, but rain it shall! After that: dry weather for at least three days.

Friday starts off clear, turns cloudy mid-morning, and has light rain starting around 2pm. The snow level will be 10,000′ early, 8500′ in the afternoon, and 4500′ after midnight after the precip ends. A trace of rain falls in the afternoon, and another 0.2” rain falls tonight. Wind will be W 20-25 early, SW 20 midday and evening, and N 10 after midnight.

Saturday looks clear, with a few clouds possible in the afternoon. The free air freezing level (FAF) will be 4500′ in the morning and 6500′ in the afternoon and overnight. It’s possible we’ll see the snow snap, meaning there could be excellent spring skiing Saturday. No precip. Wind: N 10 all day and night. Sunday looks sunny. High clouds move in after midnight. The FAF will be 6500′ in the morning and 8000′ in the afternoon and evening. Wind: N 0 early, NW 10 in the afternoon, WNW 10 after midnight. Monday brings high clouds, warm temps, and increasing NW wind.

Gorge Wind

Offshore high pressure for the next few days drives Gorge westerlies of varying quality. Most of the wind will be in the western Gorge, meaning the possibility exists for a two or three sport day! Friday will be the gustiest of the next three, as a front moves through midday. Expect gusty westerlies at 13-19 this morning with lighter wind in various locations. After 2pm, we’ll see the wind steady out a bit: 17-21 from Stevenson to Mosier with 23-26 from Rowena to Arlington. That said, rain is likely east of The Dalles this evening, meaning the eastern Gorge wind could be unreliable.

Saturday sees offshore high pressure build. This sets up wind pretty in many locations across Oregon. The coast has 20-25 north and central with 35+ at Pistol. NW swell 6′ at 9 seconds. Sauvie’s: 16-19. Jones: 20-23. Gorge: 14-17 in the morning from Stevenson to Rufus. 20-23 in the afternoon from Stevenson to Mosier with 10-13 east of Mosier. There is a beach cleanup at Viento sponsored by CGW2 on Saturday morning at 9am. BBQ to follow.

Sunday sees a sunny day with continued offshore high pressure. Coast wind: 15-20 north and central. 30-35 in the south. Gorge: 16-19 to start the day from Stevenson to Rufus. Gusty 23-26 in the afternoon from Stevenson to Avery as a front disturbs the stability of the offshore situation. Monday’s long-range and not-reliable forecast is gusty 18-22. River flow Friday: 212kcfs. Temp: 48 degrees. Color: brown.

Road and Mountain Biking

Syncline is definitely awesome right now, and you’ll want to get it soon before the Oak takes over. Post is wonderful. Whoopdee is wonderful and has some wildflowers. If you’re riding Underwood, please do not park at the trailhead any more as per request by SDS. There is a parking area 0.5 miles farther down the road. The cows are out on Hospital Hill, which happens to be private land owned by the Kreps family. Do not take your dog or you 1) endanger the life of your dog and 2) endanger access to the land for everyone.
