PORTLAND, Ore. — We've got a clear sky and light winds, perfect conditions for fog to form in the overnight hours. Temperatures are already in the low 30s, and morning lows will be around 30-degrees.
But the Northwest catches a break from stormy weather for the work week.
By mid-day Tuesday the fog burns off. East winds develop Tuesday afternoon and evening and get quite strong.
Look for highs in the low 50s Tuesday with plenty of sun.
The east wind ensures a clear day Wednesday. Valley highs will warm into the mid-50s, with 60s likely at a few spots on the coast.
Dry weather continues Thursday and Friday. A few high clouds from a weakening weather system drift inland, and the east winds will be weaker. Highs will still make the low 50s.
The dry weather comes to an end Saturday as valley rain and mountain snow return.
Sunday will be a soaker.
The snow level will rise to around 4,000 feet over the weekend, but colder air returns Sunday night and the snow level plummets. A few snowflakes may survive to the valley floor in showers Monday morning, but not enough to have an impact.
Have a great evening.
