PORTLAND, Ore — It’s not your imagination, it’s been a wet January.  And our wettest month in nearly three years!  

If you like stats, here are a few: 

  • PDX has recorded just one totally dry day this month (Jan. 20) and we’re not likely to register another (Friday is iffy). 
  • The monthly rain tally at PDX (as of Monday) is 6.56 inches, making this our wettest month since March 2017 (7.26 inches).

A series of storm systems will keep us wet this week, with forecast models projecting at least another inch of rain in the area through Friday.

Here’s a snapshot of Tuesday's weather headlines:

  • It still looks wet, with on and off showers throughout the day. We’ll probably tack on another quarter or third of an inch to that already impressive monthly total.  
  • Expect more Cascade snow Tuesday above about 4,000 feet. Meadows & Timberline have both picked up close to a foot of fresh snow in the last 24 hours.  
  • We’ll get a brief break in the rain tonight, but another round of rain is due in Wednesday morning.
