PORTLAND -- Conditions in the Portland and Vancouver Metro areas on New Year's Eve may include some spotty rain showers but temperatures are expected to remain above freezing all night, according to KGW Meteorologist Jim Donovan.
Most likely, the cloudy skies and sprinkles will move out of the area by Tuesday afternoon, and "We should be dry on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day," Donovan said. "Midnight temperatures will be in the mid-30s with light winds and mostly cloudy skies."
Tuesday's high temperature was expected to reach 44 degrees, with a low of 35. Wednesday's high was forecast to be 46, with a low of 35.
A new cold front was expected to reach the area Thursday night, but it won't be very strong.
"Portland should see .25 inches of rain Thursday and Thursday night. Mt. Hood may be lucky to get one to four inches of snow, with the snow level falling to 3,500 feet Friday morning," Donovan added.
Thursday's high temperature was expected to reach 45 degrees, with a low of 35.
