PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Showers continue Friday morning, heavy at times over the coast range. Portland temperatures start in the upper 30s and reach the upper 40s by the afternoon. Showers dwindle during the day. You may even get a break between rain clouds to see the sun!

Saturday: An area of low pressure heads to Southwest Oregon leaving us on the outskirts of light showers. Temps will be low 50s.

Sunday – Monday: We’ll be tapping on a weak atmospheric river. The majority of moisture is aimed at western WA, leaving Portland in the lower category for rain totals, less than 0.70″. SW Wash could receive up to 2″ of rain.

We are monitoring rivers. No action or flood stages reported yet but that may change by Sunday/Monday.

Drought Status

We are making strides towards reaching no-drought status county by county. There are marked improvements after coming in as the 2nd snowiest February on record for Portland. Take a look at the comparison below, from last month to this month. Multnomah County is no longer in any drought category — not even abnormally dry, unlike the southeast and south-central portions of the state.
