4th of July weekend: A little taste of everything

More dry hours than wet this weekend.

PORTLAND, Oregon —

The 4th of July weekend is upon us and we're going to start the holiday weekend with dry weather on Saturday. Daytime highs through the metro area will be in the mid to upper 70s with some afternoon clearing. 

If you have plans on camping this weekend over the Cascades or in central Oregon be prepared for thunderstorms. Our Futurecast shows showers and thunderstorms Saturday afternoon and evening over the Cascades and areas to the east. The chance of getting wet increases Sunday with mostly cloudy skies and continues Monday, but again nearly all of expected rain showers and thunderstorms develop near and east of the Cascades.  It all means, the the coast and the valley will either see a few showers develop over the weekend or simply no rain at all. 

Have a great weekend,
