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).

  Santiam Pass - Forecast / Radar - from National Weather Service in Portland, OR

Like it? This page is brought to you courtesy of the Santiam Pass Ski Patrol and their web site. If you like what you see, let them know. If you don't like what you see, use the "Email them" feedback link given below to suggest an improvement. 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.

If you have ideas for improvements to this weather page, please Email them to "".

Notes:
  • Other sources of information

  • 2015 08/15 - Weather Underground "local" map of current conditions
  • 2019 11/10 - Uploading raw weather data for today, one day ago, and two days ago. Tab-separated data columns, so you can "Open With" a spreadsheet program.
    - Files are uploaded shortly after the hours of 8, 12, 16, 20.
  • 2019 12/21 - Moon phase (%) is good, but the code for computing moon rise & set times never seemed to work, so try web pages like this one.
  • 2020 02/15 - Wind speed signal checked for noise causing erratic overspeed readings. Now have a two-stage low-pass RC filter going into a schmitt trigger buffer. There were no bad symptoms observed at the time, so the fix provided no proof of improvement. It's more fun to know when a "fix" actually fixes something.
  • 2020 03/01 - Snow depth sensor power supply investigated for 60 Hz noise. The trickle charger was found to be capable of inducing 42 VAC in addition to the 25 VDC on the floating battery. Added a ground bonding connection to keep the battery voltage more, well, "grounded". This probably will not fix anything, but less chaos is usually an improvement.
  • 2020 03/14 - Software update to fix snow depth reporting failed. Reverting to previous version which has data outages when large snowfall events happen during times when the sensor is inoperable. We got about 9" overnight which will not be reported until there are more observations with the snowfall than without.
  • 2020 03/14 - Software workaround: The 6 hour weather summary web page recovers from the above software bug much faster than the 48 hour weather summary web page.
  • 2020 03/14 9AM - We are also seeing a "data outage" on the snow depth sensor where no response is received when the sensor is "pinged" for a measurement.
    - This same symptom was seen on the weather station datalogger (completely different hardware and wires) a few days ago. An observer at the datalogger saw the interrogation pulse, but an observer at the logging computer never saw a response recorded. This problem "fixed itself" after several hours. Would prefer to eliminate the problem, but that takes time . . .
  • 2020 03/14 - Snow depth raw data, to investigate correlation to times & events.
  • 2020 03/14 - Not just weather, but an interesting map that has weather information embedded in it.
