PORTLAND -- The outlook for summer continues to show drier than normal weather, even despite the week of rain in the forecast.
KGW's 7-day forecast has rain through at least Friday. That's after last Sunday's rain ended a streak of 14 dry days of sunshine in a row.

The record of consecutive dry days in May, meaning not even a trace of rain, is 15 daysand was made back in 1995.
"The June outlook has the Northwest in the bulls-eye of below-normal rainfall. July and August are also expected to see drier-than-normal weather," said KGW Meteorologist Rod Hill. "Keep in mind, a dry summer could mean hardly any rain at all."
Hill added that the June temperature outlook was pointing to cooler-than-normal temperatures but little rain.
"If true, we may see a high number of cloudy mornings," Hill said.
The July and August temperature outlooks were showing an equal chance of warm or cool weather.
"At this time there is no reason to expect a period of extreme heat," Hill said.
