Fall : Calm is Common "in Jenner":  Occasionally: Wind from WNW and NW directly hits us. Periods of high waves can also close the river mouth. Periods of light to moderate rain.

"This is a curving river".  "Farther Upstream"  may have PM winds when the estuary does not.  Paddlers can become "exhausted or stranded" fighting  winds on many California rivers. 

​"Long downstream trips" Start / Finish Early on Windy Days


Check Back  : Forecasts can change.

See our safety page for  apps to track local conditions.

We use 4, as no single one correctly covers  all conditions.

We are not responsible for accuracy as forecasts can and do change. Therefore nobody can interpret with full accuracy.
