Gorge Wind Forecast

Active weather over the NE Pacific drives continued Gorge westerlies over the next few days. That active weather also makes the wind gusty and inconsistent. Saturday morning gradients started at .12 and .02, a sign that you’ll probably want to stay in the Corridor or Near East today for the best results. We’ll see 10-13 near Stevenson, 20-23 from Viento to Swell, and 14-17 in other locations to start the day. Morning wind should rise to gusty 22-25 from Viento to Doug’s before a brief dip of a few miles an hour midday as a shortwave arrives. Afternoon wind looks to rebound to gusty 24-27 from Rowena to Rufus with gusty 17-21 from Stevenson to Mosier. River flow is 142kcfs and temp is 67 degrees.

Sunday morning continues the pattern: an offshore low sends a weak weather system through during the day. Early wind will be 15-18 from Viento to Mosier with 10-13 east and west of there. By noon, westerlies rise to 16-19 from Stevenson to The Dalles. The wind shifts east in the afternoon, with 14-17 from Stevenson to Moiser and gusty 22-25 from Hood River to Rufus. Roosevelt maxes out at 12-15.

A trough moves onshore on Sunday night allowing weak high pressure to build offshore on Monday. Morning wind starts at 10-13 form Stevenson to Hood River with 7-10 east of there. Midday: 17-20 from Stevenson to The Dalles. Afternoon: 18-22 from Stevenson to Viento with gusty 22-26 from Hood River to Rufus.

Road and Mountain Biking

All local trails are snow-free. The only unconfirmed trail I have right now is Huffman Peak. Apparently Boulder Lakes is quite overgrown. Mt. Margaret still has snow. Whoopdee is closed for logging, but Ronnoc trail and the climb out are open. Red Hill Road is supposedly closed for logging. Ride at your own risk. If you’re riding Underwood, please do not park at the trailhead as per request by SDS. Continue past the trailhead 0.5 miles or so to the new parking area. The cows are off Hospital Hill!

Upcoming Events

Saturday is the Gorge Outrigger Canoe Race from Stevenson to Hood River. This weekend is the annual kiteboard for Cancer fundraiser at Hood River’s Event Site. There’s the spectacular kite derby on Saturday and the Never-Ever Kiteboarded race on Sunday. Even though it’s mid-summer, Timberline has ski races all weekend. There’s an ice cream social at the Rockford Grange on Sunday at 4:30pm. There’s a trail work party in Post Canyon meeting at Post Flats at 9am Saturday, and there’s a cleanup at Riverfront Park in The Dalles at 9am Saturday. Saturday’s also the Rosie the Riveter fun run at Shortt Supply at 9am, and there are free Solomon shoe demos at that one.
