Portland Weather Forecast

Here is your updated Portland Weather Forecast-

The rain is back!  Take it easy on the roads this morning, they are very wet and slick.  As of 6:30 am, we’ve reported on four different slide-offs across the metro area.  After a wet morning commute, we switch to on and off showers this afternoon.  There’s a slight chance of afternoon thunder west of the Cascades, east of the mountains there’s a much better chance of thunderstorms.

Fire danger stays high east of the Cascades as storms will be popping up Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons. The lightning from the storms could start more wildfire and then thunderstorms can also bring strong gusts of winds that can fuel and spread ongoing fires. On a positive note, extra moisture and cooler temperatures will bring a little help.

Wednesday looks to be the most unsettled of the week with showers and thunderstorms likely for much of the Willamette valley and along the mountains and east.  High temperatures will struggle to make it out of the 60s.

We switch back to summer-like weather Thursday.
