Hoodoo Butte is a 5700' (1737 m) volcanic cinder cone located on the crest of the Cascade Range in central Oregon.

On your map, it's about 2.5 miles southwest of Santiam Pass (Highway US 20, milepost 81), and about 1.5 miles west of the Pacific Crest Trail. For the GPS-inclined, that's about 44.402 N, 121.882 W (WGS84 datum).

Weather forecasts for the Northern Oregon Cascades - Santiam Pass area and other zones are provided by the National Weather Service office in Portland, OR - radar (long range).

If you don't like the weather, we may not either, but that's a whole 'nother discussion . . .


Ideas? Most of the instruments and software used to generate these weather condition pages were provided by the Santiam Pass Ski Patrol.

The precipitation sensor data is provided by the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), which maintains many "SNOTEL" sites from New Mexico to Alaska.

Notes:
  • Fire Season Information

  • 2011 06/25 - Added moon rise & set times in the "Light Level" section. While the times appear to be correct, one known bug is that on days when there is not a moon rise or set, a time is computed and given anyway. Beware of moon rise or set times between 11PM and 1AM until this note is removed. (Another good reason not to stay up late.)
  • 2012 09/01 - Moon phase (%) is good, but the moon rise & set times can be off by more than an hour :-( Until I get this fixed, try a web page like this one.
  • 2015 07/32 - Water levels in nearby reservoirs.
  • 2015 08/15 - Weather Underground "local" map of current conditions
  • 2016 04/15 - "Turned-on" the tipping-bucket rain gauge data channel. And then it snowed again, which serves as an opportunity to remind you that what gets reported isn't necessarily what happened.
  • 2016 05/20 - "Precipitation" data from the Hogg Pass Snotel site restored. They had moved the file to a different directory and prohibited the use of FTP to access it. Go "cURL" !
  • 2016 05/20 - Added "Air Quality Index" links in "Fire Season Information" section. Some may be unusable if you have slow internet access :-(
  • 2016 05/20 - Snow depth sensor may have a problem that requires an overhaul. That may not be an immediate problem.
  • 2016 07/02 - Both wind direction and snow depth sensors are acting unusual. Both typically have small variations over time, so when that's not true it's time to suspect a problem. The wind direction sensor can fail due to a bearing or a potentiometer problem. The snow depth sensor usually fails in the ultrasonic transducer.
  • 2016 08/05 - Wind direction and snow depth sensors have been removed for servicing.
  • 2016 08/06 - Working on the software to indicate when a sensor (e.g. wind, temperature, snow depth) is offline. The code was not written with this feature in mind, so some parts are absolutely incompatible with being "fixed". This is going to take some time...
  • 2016 08/20 - Carpentry work at Manzanita ski patrol building means no camera views from Manzanita and the top of the mountain until further notice. See Random Shot #4 for a peek at the work.
