Mt. Hood Weather Forecast

Oh what a difference 100 miles makes: Mt. Adams is sitting there under clear sky, and Mt. Hood is foggy and cloudy. It’s looking like Mt. Hood will retain some cloudiness today, not clearing until the evening. The freezing level (FAF) will be 6000′ early, 6500′ midday, and 6000′ tonight. Wind: light in the morning, NW 15 in the afternoon, and N 10 overnight.

Sunday looks sunny. FAF: 6000′ early and 8000′ in the afternoon and evening. Wind: N 10 early, NW 15-20 in the afternoon, WNW 15 overnight. Monday looks cloudy. FAF: 8000′ early and 10,000′ later. Wind: WNW 15 early, WNW 20 in the afternoon, W 20 overnight. The mountain may see sprinkles on Tuesday, but it may also be above the sprinkle-causing clouds.

Gorge Wind

Looks like we’re going to have a windy weekend as offshore high pressure drives Gorge westerlies! For Saturday, gradients started at .09 and .02, a sign you’ll want to stay in the central Gorge. River flow: 202kcfs. Temp: 49 degrees. Morning wind starts in the 13-16 range from Stevenosn to Hood River with 7-10 east of there under showery, cloudy sky. Give the clouds a couple hours to move east, and the wind will settle down. This afternoon brings 10-13 in the eastern Groge and 22-25 from Stevenson to The Dalles.

Sunday brings a stable weather pattern with strong offshore high pressure and a good chance of a marine push into Portland. We call this “classic Gorge setup”. Sunday starts with 25-29 from Viento to Mosier and holds at 25-29 from Stevenson to Mosier all day with Doug’s and Rowena likely to fill in for the afternoon.

Monday looks lighter as a system moves towards Vancouver Island. Mornign wind: 7-11 from Stevenosn to Mosier. Afternoon: 13-16 from Stevenson to Avery.

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.
