Portland Metro Tuesday Weather: June Gloom Continues with Cloudy Skies and Possible Drizzle

Clouds and possible drizzle for Tuesday. More clearing and sun breaks expected Wednesday. (

Tuesday morning repeats the weather pattern from yesterday with occasional drizzle and/or brief light rain at times. Skies will remain mostly cloudy through the afternoon, but the rain should taper off. High for Tuesday of 63 degrees.

The front that brought a strong onshore flow into the metro area both Monday and Tuesday will weaken by this evening and into Wednesday. High pressure will build on Wednesday morning to quickly push out the early clouds and leave partly-to-mostly sunny skies for the afternoon.

With the return of sunshine, we’ll also see temperatures closer to what is expected for mid June, with mid to upper 60s on the coast, and lower 70s inland. Wednesday’s high is expected to reach 72 degrees.

The warm and sunny skies don’t last long, however. The next cold front spreads rain into the valleys early Thursday morning. This system is very wet and the coast is expected to see about an inch of rain. The National Weather Service says the interior valleys could see 0.50 to 0.75 inches of rain by Thursday evening. Thursday’s high is 66 degrees.

At this point, Friday looks wet as well, especially in the morning. Forecasters are looking at a drying and heating trend beginning on Saturday.
