Portland hit 63 degrees this afternoon, setting a new record high temperature for November 28th. It was a warm day across the region with mid-upper 60s even in the high desert of Central Oregon.
This evening a cold front will send rain southward over southwest Washington and northwest Oregon. There will be periods of rain tonight and Monday morning. By the late morning, the cold front should push most of the rain south and east of the metro area. Expect high temps to range between the mid to upper 50s on Monday; not as warm as today, but still near record values for November 29th.
Our weather will remain relatively warm and humid through Tuesday, keeping lots of clouds around and the potential for areas of drizzle. By Wednesday though, high pressure will take over, which will likely dry out our weather for several days. Some fog will be possible during the morning hours, followed by mostly sunny skies. Since we’ll be on the northern edge of the high pressure system, weak weather systems could ride over the ridge & clip our northern zones Thursday & Saturday. Those days will probably feature a bit more cloud cover.
Temperatures turn cooler NEXT weekend, back to normal and we may enter a significantly wetter weather pattern from that point forward into the middle of December.
