It’s fall now, and that means it’s time for … more windsurfing and kiting! No, silly. It’s time to think about skiing.

Random Morning Thoughts

Just a warning that there will be no forecast for Sunday, 10/13. Thank you, and have a nice day.

Wind guessings, prognosticatings and musings

The fact that there’s no forecast coming tomorrow shouldn’t screw up your windsport or fishing or no-wind sport plans. Today we’ll see the wind build to gusty 13-15 from Stevenson to Mosier midday, holding through the evening. Tomorrow, though, looks calm as a Wall Street trader on Columbus Day. No wind. Neither east nor west. Monday brings east wind at 10-15.

Plain old weather

Today’s weak frontal system brings clouds and maybe a few sprinkles. Tomorrow starts with leftover frontal clouds and a round of inversion clouds, but by afternoon, the sky should be clear. Monday looks dry. Hell, all of next week looks dry and sunny, after a few morning clouds.

Up on Mt. Hood, the snow level today is 4500-5000′, with just trace accumulations. Tomorrow starts with the freezing level at 6000′, rising to 8000′ in the afternoon. On Monday, the freezing level will be 8000′ early and 10,000′ in the afternoon.

Mountain biking

Looking forward to 46 miles of dirt tomorrow.
