That fog layer will quickly dissipate through the morning hours, giving way to sunny afternoon conditions. Afternoon sunshine will put temperature back into the mid-50s throughout the Portland area.

Clear skies will make for another chilly night Thursday into Friday morning. The potential to see minor frost is possible in some locations early Friday morning along with some patchy fog.
