Well, it’s Monday again, and we’re all suffering time lag from switching our clocks to standard time this weekend. The standard we’re striving for, apparently, is complete darkness after work. All I have to say about that is, “Yuck!”

The snow forecast for the next few days isn’t very promising, as an upper low stays close enough to send clouds over western WA/OR, but far enough away to keep the precipitation from falling on Mt. Hood. The mountain sees the snow level around 2500’ today, with WSW wind at 10-15mph. We might see a light band of snow move through overnight, between 10pm and 2am, for less than 1” of new snow.

Tomorrow starts off with the snow level / free air freezing level around 2000’, rising to 5500’ by the afternoon in southerly flow caused by the offshore low. The wind will be light east early, going to S 10-20 in the afternoon. No new snow.

Wednesday sees a slight chance for snow mixed with rain between 4am and 10am with the snow level at 6000’ and the free air freezing level rising to 7500’ in the afternoon. Next chance for significant snow will be next weekend. Chance of Meadows/Skibowl opening in the next two weeks? Less than 10%.

In Gorge wind news, we’ll see light west wind today, light east wind tomorrow, and easterlies in the 21-24 range on Wednesday.

There’s not much to talk about in upcoming events in the Gorge, so just get out and enjoy the dry weather!
