PORTLAND – After another day of scattered showers Monday, the sun will be out in full force with spring-like temperatures in the upper 50s to low 60s expected for the rest of the week.

Portland Metro Area residents may even see the warmest day of the year so far on Wednesday. 

“The fog and low clouds will clear this afternoon for a very nice and mostly sunny day," KGW Meteorologist Nick Allard said Tuesday morning.

Tuesday temps should reach the high 50s and the sun will continue Wednesday and Thursday with temperatures reaching the low 60s. 

“Expect fog and cold weather each morning before the sunshine comes out for the afternoon,” Allard said. “It should be really nice.”

KGW Chief Meteorologist Matt Zaffino said Wednesday could be the warmest day of the year so far, topping the previous high of 62 degrees.

"The Portland area will see highs in the low to mid 60s, making it the warmest day of the year so far in many locations," Zaffino said. 

A chance of showers may show up Thursday before the sun returns this weekend, bringing with it spring-like temps in the 60s.
