PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Wowza, what a nice stretch of weather we’ve had this week. Highs on Thursday reached 68° at PDX. The day before that it was 71°!
The sky this morning goes from partly cloudy to overcast with a marine layer spreading across the valley. Morning lows will hover in the upper-30s at the coast and low 40s around PDX.
Morning drizzle along the coast Friday seems fairly likely as a weak disturbance cruises by. There is a very low chance the marine layer over the valley could be enhanced to the point we ring out some mist. I’m doubting this scenario as I write it, but must mention the slight possibility.
For the afternoon expect mostly cloudy skies. Daytime highs reach the low to mid-60s.
