Random Morning Thoughts

I do believe that today is The Second Tanning Day of the Season.

Mt. Hood Snow Forecast

No. No snow for you. Just sun and really warm temps.

Gorge Wind

The east gradient sat at .06 at 6am, enough for low teens on the water. Expect the easterlies to pick up to 21-24 at Stevenson and 26-30 at Rooster today. Same tomorrow. A few miles per hour less on Thursday. The central Gorge and upper valleys will see easterlies at 10-15.

The coast will be warm and sunny today and tomorrow, but there won’t be all that much wind. Expect temps between 70 and 80 on the north coast today and tomorrow with light north wind and a 4′ swell at 10 seconds. The central coast sees a little more wind – N 15-20 late in the day – both Tuesday and Wednesday. It may be just windy enough to mess up the surf and not windy enough to kite or windsurf, but I thought I’d mention the coast with those warm temps predicted out there. Maybe you can just go to the beach and get a tan.

Gorge Weather

Expect sunshine for the next 3-4 days. Zero percent chance of rainbows, expect for those seen in sprinklers. Temps will be in the low 40’s this morning, rising to the mid 70’s in the afternoon. Light east wind. Tomorrow starts in the mid 40’s and hits the low 80’s. Light east wind. Wednesday starts in the upper 40’s and gets to the upper 80’s. Light east wind. Thursday may break 90 degrees.

Road and Mountain Biking

Today’s dirt will be epic. Today’s road biking will be epic. Maybe you should do both?
