  • Portland Metro Thursday Forecast: Brrr - it's actually really cool out this morning

    Thursday's high will hover around 68. Friday's high will be 72 and Saturday about the same.

    You could go back and look the last time the overnight lows dropped below 50 degrees, and it would be quite a while. But that's what we had last night. Some areas dropped to 48 and that trend will continue at least through Friday and into Saturday.

    This low coming dropping in from Vancouver B.C. brought some showers yesterday to "our" Vancouver (Washington) and a few scattered showers to the Portland area. Today we'll see more sun, but not a lot of warming.

    Thursday's high will hover around 68. Friday's high will be 72 and Saturday about the same.

    The clouds that do move through could give us a shower, but most of the shower activity will be limited to the coast and the coast range.

    The National Weather Service warns that elevations above 5000 ft may see snow showers tonight and into Friday. If you're planning some back country camping, be ready for unseasonably cold nights.

  • Portland Metro Wednesday Forecast: More wet, more cool for your Wednesday

    The rain showers should be light, and scattered with the best bet today for rain from 10 a.m. until around 5 p.m.

    An upper level low that's been hanging around in Vancouver B.C. is slowly dropping clouds and moisture into our forecast area. Along with the wet, it's also bringing cool air. Expect highs today of only 68.

    bus rain.JPGRain showers today, high of 68 

    The rain showers should be light, and scattered with the best bet today for rain from 10 a.m. until around 5 p.m. Some areas of Vancouver have seen rain already this morning.  Most of the rain should fall after the morning commute.

    Tomorrow looks similar, but with less rain. Expect some spotty showers Thursday and a high of 69.

    Forecasters are looking into the upcoming Labor Day weekend and have sent out a warning to those vacationing in eastern Oregon mountain areas including the Wallowa, Elkhorn, Strawberry and Cascade ranges. It is possible a dusting of snow could fall Friday night into Saturday morning in those areas. The snow level could fall to as low as 6000 ft. Even in the lower elevations, overnight temperatures could be in the low 40s. If you're heading out in that direction, be prepared.
