PORTLAND, Oregon — A sunny warm finish on this final full day of summer. Portland and Salem will warm into the 80s. East winds are expected to develop during the gorge, gusting to 25 mph this afternoon. The coast and all of our region will enjoy sunshine.
A weak cold front will bring clouds and possible traces of rain Wednesday, along with cooler metro temperatures in the low 70s. Fall begins tomorrow at 12:21 pm local time with the Autumnal Equinox.
Dry weather with increasing sunshine returns Thursday. Right now, I see a pleasant weekend followed by a possible good bit of rain next Monday overnight and Tuesday. Forecast models show up to 1/4" of rainfall with the cold front.
