Storm season ramps up late this week

Your forecast from the KGW weather team, updated several times daily. This includes the outlook around Oregon and in Southwest Washington.

PORTLAND, Oregon — We get another pleasant Fall day Tuesday. The sky will be partly sunny, and high temperatures will be in the mid-60s, or about 5 degrees warmer than Monday.

Rain returns late Tuesday night, with showers Wednesday. This system will drop about a quarter-inch of rain across western Oregon.

There should be a break Thursday before the next system drops heavier rain Thursday night and Friday. That’s followed by another system Saturday with more rain.

Another storm arrives later Sunday into Monday. This one has the potential to produce strong winds and heavy rain, but it's too  soon to tell where exactly the strong winds might be.

By the end of the week, the western valleys will pick up between 1 and 2 inches of rain.

It looks like the stormy pattern will continue into next week.

Have a great Tuesday.

Take good care of each other.
