When it comes to whitewater rafting, the Pacific Northwest has it all.
Deep mountain snow in the winter, cool damp springs and warm summers combine to make the region a hotbed for kayaking and rafting on dozens of rivers.
For this edition of the Your Weather podcast, KOIN Meteorologist Kelley Bayern and KOIN Sports Anchor (and former rafting guide) AJ McCord head out on the White Salmon River, one of the Pacific Northwest’s best whitewater playgrounds.
With the help of the Portland Rafting Company, Kelley explains how weather plays a role in the health and changes of the river all summer long.
