It's STILL in the 60s west and south of downtown Portland, and 50s on the east side where slightly cooler air is blowing out the Gorge.
Hillsboro and Astoria had record highs Wednesday with 64° and 63° respectively.
Temperatures remain mild overnight, not dropping out of the mid-50s. Rain is now becoming steadier and heavier and south winds are getting stronger.
Turkey Day will be rainy and windy in Oregon and Washington. Valley winds will gust to 30 mph and the coast will see winds as high as 45 mph.
But the steady rain turns to showers, with sunbreaks, in the afternoon, and valley highs will again be near 60-degrees!
Friday will be partly sunny and cooler but very pleasant, with highs around 55-degrees.
Saturday and Sunday will be rainy. The snow level drops Sunday afternoon to about 4,000 feet, so there will likely be snow-covered roads in the Cascade passes Sunday afternoon and evening.
After showers and sunbreaks on Monday, Northwest weather should dry out for the middle of next week.
