Morning low temps will range from the mid to upper 50s

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — You may end up driving through areas of patchy fog on Tuesday morning, especially on the outskirts of the urban islands where temperatures have cooled to the dew point. Otherwise isolated drizzle/light rain is possible briefly early this morning. Morning low temps will range from the mid to upper 50s.

FOG…. I-5 at the La Center exit next to Ilani Casino. At the moment of this picture visibility was down to 1/4 mile.

Today cloudy skies become mostly cloudy to partly cloudy. Daytime highs will likely reach the low to mid 70s. A warming trend continues this week. Thursday and Friday will likely be our warmest days. Models have backed down a couple degrees so 90° may be out of reach Thursday. I’m seeing a range of temps from 85° to 88° tops for Thursday.

Take a look at the range of temperatures for Thursday afternoon offered by various forecast models in the slideshow below.
