River flow is 44,900cfs and temp is 51 degrees.

Friday starts out with very light easterlies or completely calm wind. As a front moves through midday, the wind will pick up to gusty 12-15 out of the west through the entire Gorge. Saturday starts out calm. Some light easterlies blow during the middle of the day near Stevenson (10-15mph or so), and then the wind goes calm again. A front moves through on Sunday.
