PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Rain is slowly moving inland this morning from the coast. In the meantime, where mid and high level clouds have cleared from earlier in the evening, fog dominates. Areas lacking the rain and wind will hold onto fog the longest. Even patchy fog can make it hard to see a car length ahead. Slow down and give lots of space.
Portland should see rain sometime close to 6am, if not soon thereafter. Rain is expected to last most of the day. The Willamette Valley could measure up to a half inch of rain by the end of the day. Heaviest showers will be at the coast with gusty winds from the south. Rain totals could range from 1″ to 1.5″.
