September rain totals now well-above normal at more than three inches at PDX.
Cool air in place today will allow for instability, so we will keep a chance for isolated thunderstorms through the evening. Temperatures fall to the low 60’s tonight and mid 50’s Thursday morning.
We’ll finally see a nice dry day on Thursday, before a few more showers on Friday. The weekend is looking 50/50 with some dry time on Saturday and then showers on Sunday. A few signs of warming and drying out next week.

For this Your Weather podcast, KOIN 6 Meteorologist Kelley Bayern dives into fall climatology with Warning Coordination Meteorologist, Tyree Wilde, at the National Weather Service office in Portland.
They discuss how El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) may bring large-scale influences to our storm track, if coastal communities should prepare for a mega wind storm, and whether the region should brace for more tornadoes.
