Extended Forecast?

You seem to know the forecast for the Gorge as well as you nail it in Utah. The Iwindsurf forecast for the gorge this morning seems dismal even for the extended. Allot of talk about bad cycle, low pressures lined up for up there. What is youre spin. Was planning late June early July run up there?

Now let me get this straight, you want to know how the Gorge is going to
be 2 weeks hence, and you want me to go up against George McLean.
Sheesh! Seriously though. A low off the Oregon coast coupled with
a very Southerly flow is not great for the Gorge. It'll kick off
little short waves that come inland, and provide a couple hours of
gusty (and sometimes rainy) wind a day, usually in the 15-20 MPH
range. It typically isn't great, and it's been
the prevailing pattern all Spring. It looks like that will last all this week,
but there also looks like a shift in the long range pattern by Saturday.

Long long range, the first week in July is a very good bet, but remember,
this is a system of chaos we're talking about. Wait at least until
the flow is Westerly rather than Southerly.

I'm going up this weekend ;*)

you are the best. I try and save gas and go when it could at least have a chance. the iwindsurf long term comments are exactly what you just said, but now i can and try and look for a more west flow. I hope you have a good time this weekend. I only get one stab this year!!
cheers
