Showers possible to start the week, then a few days of sun

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 — Well that was exciting, no? A few rumbles of thunder, a few heavy showers and some hail, sounds like Marrch.

Showers are dissipating this evening, and will likely shutoff right after sunset. With the sky starting to clear -at least partially- overnight, some parts of the Willamette Valley are likely to have freezing temps and possibly some slick spots on the roads early Monday morning.

Monday looks like a mostly cloudy, but mostly dry day with the threat of rain not returning to the Portland Metro area until late in the afternoon, perhaps as early as midday along the Central Oregon Coast.

The shower threat remains on Tuesday but we expect a drying trend commencing Tuesday evening.  It now looks like that dry weather may hold into the first half of our upcoming weekend.

By the way, next weekend is the beginning of Daylight Saving Time. Perhaps THIS will be the last year we move our clocks forward, time will tell. In case you haven't heard, there's strong support for that in Congress.
