Morning fog clears for a sunny Dr. King Day

The Portland/Vancouver weather forecast from the KGW weather team. Updated several times daily, this includes the outlook around Oregon and in Southwest Washington.

PORTLAND, Oregon — A chilly start to your Monday with fog pockets and temps in the 40s for much of the valley.  Clearing skies will bring a sunny afternoon with high temps near 50 degrees.  East winds near the gorge are expected to kick-up later this afternoon. Dry weather should hold through the day Wednesday.  A Thursday front will bring rain and open the door to a colder weather pattern that will last into February. 

Chris McGinness writes about the cold temperature change coming this week:

We'll be a little cooler this week, especially next weekend. Officially at Portland International, we have not been below freezing in nearly 3 weeks. For the first 16 days of January, temperatures are more than 6° above average. 

Right now, Sunday snow levels for accumulation will hold just above 1,000 feet. We may see a mix of rain and wet snow with above freezing temps several times in the coming two weeks at the lowest elevations. .
