Mt. Hood Weather Forecast

We’ve achieved our first round of “spring skiing” for the winter, as high pressure settles over the Northwest for a few days. That’ll bring dry weather and warmer temps with the possibility for intermittent high clouds.

For Saturday, expect a sunny day on Mt. Hood. The free air freezing level (FAF) will be 5000′ early and 8000′ in the afternoon. Wind will be S 10-15 all day. Sunday looks clear. The FAF will be 9000′ to 10,000′ all day. Wind will be S 10-15 early and SE 10-15 in the afternoon and evening.

Monday looks clear. FAF: 10,000′ falling to 6000′ overnight. Wind: SSE 10-20. Tuesday starts off clear and then turns clouds. FAF: 6000′ early and 5000′ in the evening. Wind: SE 10-20. Next chance of precip is Wednesday, but there’s not much of it. After that, models disagree and no forecast is possible.

Gorge Wind Forecast

The Gorge wind forecast is the same for the next three days. East wind. 45-50 at Rooster Rock, 25-30 near Stevenson, 15-20+ near Viento. The wind will back off a bit on Monday afternoon and pick back up to 40-45 on Tuesday.

Gorge Weather Forecast

There’s a whole lot of Nothing out there this morning, and the best we’ll do today is partly cloudy in the afternoon. Temps will be near 40 early and near 40 later. East wind. No rainbows. Repeat for the next three days with sunshine possible, in the afternoons.

Road and Mountain Biking

Syncline is probably fine to ride today. Stay on the trails. Don’t shortcut the corners. Remember, if you damage the trails, volunteers have to spend timing fixing them rather than building new trails. There are lots of other options: gravel grinding, road biking, trainer biking. Don’t knock ’em ’til you try ’em!

Upcoming Events

It’s Saturday. There’s a free bootcamp workout at Sorosis Park in The Dalles at 10am. There’s an XC race at Mt. Hood Meadows this morning. Laura Green’s memorial is at Springhouse Cellars (The Ruins) at 10am today.
