PORTLAND, Oregon — 80 degree temperatures for Portland are over, at least for the short term. Cooler air arrives today with increasing cloud cover and likely showers this evening a cold front arrives.
The trailing upper low center will feed scattered showers Tuesday as the cool down continues. Snow levels will hover near 4,000 feet Tuesday or slightly higher.
The bad news is that although each day moving forward shows a shower change, very little total rain from Albany to Longview is expected. Portland could pick up .10" of rain this evening with the front, but scattered amounts Tuesday may be slightly more than a trace.
If you have outdoor plans Wednesday through the weekend, keep updated for possible changes to the rain forecast. At least some of the days have a good chance to see mostly dry weather with the best rain chance developing south and east of our region.
