THUNDERSTORM CHANCE WEDNESDAY
Tuesday, June 19, 4:45 PM
Sunny and hot was the story of the day. Highs will be close to 90 degrees today for most of the valley and Portland metro area.
Wednesday will be dry and mostly sunny to start, but we'll see increasing clouds throughout the day and bring in a chance for thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening to the Portland metro area. Thunderstorms could bring hail, heavy downpours, thunder, lightning, and strong localized winds. There is a chance that most or all of the action stays in the Cascades and east of the mountains, but it will be important to keep an eye on the forecast and the radar.
We will cool down dramatically Thursday through early next week. Your weekend looks nice with mostly sunny skies and highs in the 70s and 80s.
