Mt. Hood Weather Forecast

It’s Wednesday as I write this, and we’ll have a could more days with precipitation before a few days of dry weather. The ginormous and uber-dry high pressure system in yesterday’s forecast is looking a little weaker now. That translates to more clouds, slight chances for precip, and not-quite-so-warm weather next week.

For Wednesday, the mountain will be cloudy with some light mixed precip or drizzle this afternoon followed by snow tonight. Snow level 5000′ early, 6000′ in the afternoon, 5000′ in the evening, and 3500′ overnight. Fog in the morning gives way to light drizzle or wet snow around 1pm. Heavier precip moves in after 4pm, for 0.3” WV overnight. That’ll be 2-3” of wet snow. Wind will be SW 20 early, SW 25-30 in the afternoon, and SW 20-25 overnight.

Thursday starts with mostly cloudy sky and a few flurries and turns clear or partly cloudy by the afternoon and clear overnight. Free air freezing level: 3500′ early, rising to 7000′ overnight. Wind will be SW 20 early, SW 10 in the afternoon, and S 10 overnight.

Friday looks sunny with a few scattered high clouds in the afternoon. Free air freezing level 7000′ rising to 10,000′ and falling to 8000′. Wind: S 10-15 all day. Saturday looks partly cloudy and so does Sunday. Free air freezing level 6500′ ish. Light to moderate south wind.

Gorge Wind Forecast

Wednesday starts with easterlies at 40-50 near Rooster, 30-35 near Stevenson, and 20-25 near Viento. In the afternoon, the wind will back off to 20-25. Thursday starts with calm wind. In the afternoon, easterlies pick up to 10-15 near Stevenson and Rooster. Friday brings easterlies at 20-25 early near Stevenson and 30-35 early near Rooster. That picks up to E 40 near Rooster in the afternoon with E 30-35 near Stevenson. Saturday’s easterlies look like 35-40.

Road and Mountain Biking

It’s muddy out there on the trails with a chance of decent Syncline. Riding them will damage them. Please don’t. 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 Wednesday. There’s by-donation yoga at the FISH food bank in Hood River at 10am. On Thursday, there’s by-donation yoga at 8am at Flow. That’s followed by $5Tai Chi at the Hood River Adult Center at 2:30, community yoga at 6pm at Samadhi in White Salmon, and free Tai Chi at Our Savior Church in Bingen at 6. There’s Zumba at Mid-Valley elementary at 6:30. At 7am on Friday, there’s the Kickstand Coffee Run, where jogging or walking 4 miles gets you a free cup of coffee and a donut. There’s a by-donation yoga class at Yoga Samadhi at 4:15 on Friday afternoons.
