PORTLAND, Ore — Much of the valley is seeing early temperatures in the low to mid 20s on this Tuesday morning. Winds are light with high cloudiness overhead. The forecast continues to be dry through at least Thursday morning.
High clouds spilling overhead in a northwesterly flow pattern may thicken at times today. My forecast calls for partly sunny skies overall with valley highs warming into the low 40s. This will be the final day of well-below normal temperatures.
After another freezing start Wednesday morning, tomorrow afternoon will see warming temperatures back up to 50 degrees which is near the climate norm. Rains showers enter the forecast Thursday evening through Friday, but valley rain totals may average less than .20 inches. I am watching the chance of Saturday showers and expect Sunday to be the wettest day of the week with up to .30" of Sunday rainfall. Sunday snow levels will be near 4,000 feet.
