August is generally a good month in the Gorge. The wind can be light on very hot days (like this past weekend), but it's still windy more often than it's not. I kited all through August last year. It's 18 knots right this minute. The forecast for this week:

Tue, Aug 6 2019: The Corridor sees up and down near to spotty low-20's westerlies

Wed, Aug 7 2019: The Corridor sees low to mid-20's westerlies

Thu, Aug 8 2019: The Corridor sees upper-teens to low-20's

It really starts to slow down in September.
To my point about inaccurate forecasts, above forecast of mid 20’s on Wed, actually blowing 30-50’s today!
