Dense fog this morning, weekend rain chance on the 7day

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

PORTLAND, Oregon — Frosty with dense fog this morning in the valley and southwest Washington.  A Dense Fog Advisory is in effect through noon.  The on-going stagnant high pressure setup also has promoted an Air Stagnation Advisory.  Air quality numbers early this morning are moderate to good.  

Watch for slick roads and sidewalks if you're in the fog this morning as icy spots have been reported. 

Valley clearing today is expected to be slow, with many areas cloudy and 30s at the noon hour. Afternoon highs will warm into the 40s.  Coast temps with sunny skies will warm into the low to mid 50s. 

East winds are expected to pick up out of the gorge tonight and Tuesday.  The wind will help limit and prevent fog, paving the way for increasing sunshine the next couple of day.  I am tracking a rain chance Friday afternoon and night and likely widespread rain arriving Sunday.
