PORTLAND If you were planning a beautiful day of barbecuing for Memorial Day, you might want to think again.

KGW Meteorologist Rod Hill said it won t just rain, but there will be a complete washout.

Many Memorial Day observances will be starting around 10 a.m., which is when the rain will be really coming down, so bring your umbrella.
