PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Without much of a difference between morning lows and daytime highs on this Friday, the whole day may feel just a little off. We’ll go from above normal morning low temperatures in the mid to upper 50’s to cooler than normal max temps in the mid 60’s.

As of now we’re tied with 20th place for the coolest May on record for Portland Airport at 56.2 degrees.

Chance of rain Friday? Yes, but it’s limited and nothing compared to what we’re expecting for the deluge Saturday. So for now, plan on a mostly cloudy day with occasional rain drops increasing by the afternoon/early evening hours. Rain totals for the day in the valley will range from 0.10″ – 0.20″.

The wet, cooler than normal trend will carry over into Memorial Day weekend as well. Plan for temperatures in the lower 60s and a wet Saturday on the way. Showers continue on Sunday before we finally dry out Monday.

Did you catch those downpours and thunderstorms on Thursday?

Portland’s month to date rainfall is now 2.91″. Despite what has felt like weeks and weeks of consistent rain, that puts us in spot #22 for the rainiest May on record.
