Cloudy today with possible showers, but many areas could stay dry. The next likely shot of rain arrives early Tuesday morning. Dry weather returns tomorrow afternoon, Wednesday and Thursday! #KGWWeather
FUTURECAST shows mostly a steady rain at 8:00 pm tonight. Look for rain to pick up by early evening and heavy rain rates overnight. I am projecting .65 - 1.00" of rain overnight for the Portland metro. Should break into showers by mid-morning Saturday.
During the daytime, I expect scattered showers and high surf along the coast. However, this evening will be wet as some 12 hours of mostly steady rain begins. Portland could see an inch by morning! Cascades 10-20" of snow near 5,000' tonight.
Scattered showers this morning, lightning has been detected near the coast. Wettest part of your day is expected between 5:00 - 7:00 pm for the metro valley. #KGWWeather
More of a scattered shower pattern today, but thunderstorms and hail will be possible. Look for the wettest hours in Portland between 5:00 and 7:00 pm as another front arrives. #KGWWeather
