PORTLAND, Oregon — We've reached 80° or better 6 times already this spring, and we're going to add to that heading into Sunday. I'm forecasting highs anywhere from 80 - 85 tomorrow with nothing but sunshine. On average, Portland hits 80° for the first time on May 10, so we're quite a bit ahead of schedule on that front.
After Sunday, we'll slowly see our temperatures cool off and believe it or not we'll see some changes arrive by the early part of next week. There's a chance we could be seeing showers arrive by late Monday night and into Tuesday morning.
That will be the first in a series of small weather systems that move into the area a good part of next week. Right now, none of that rain looks terribly heavy or steady, models paint a modest few tenths of an inch in the Willamette Valley, but we certainly need it. So far this month we've only received .07" of rain.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend,
