Portland, Oregon weather forecast for Friday, February 24

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — It’s the last Friday of the month, and it feels like a January day.

If PDX restarts with a low temperature of 23° for the day, we will then break the record that was last set on this day in 1969. With a little more humidity in the atmosphere (higher dew points), we could encounter frost this morning . Wherever the snow melted the day before, it could prove problematic with ice on the roads.

There is NO light snow in this forecast. However, some will encounter freezing fog in the valley. Then we look forward to the sun all day.

This morning’s temperature will be in the mid-high 20’s. The lowest record for PDX is 23°. I don’t think Portland will beat that record but could come close. Daytime highs reach the lower 50s closer to what is considered normal for Portland in late February. The easterly wind increases in the late afternoon with wind gusts up to 20 mph possible.

Freeze Warning S. Central OR Coast Friday

Portland/SW Washington Snow Thursday Recap

Did you know that it only snows 2% of the time in February and 1% of the time in March in Portland? And when that happens, it can be a big problem. Do you remember March 8, 1951 when Portland measured 7.6 inches of snow?

Weekend forecast and almanac

From this weekend, we are on a rainy and mild temperature trend. By soft, I mean highs in the mid 50s and lows in the upper 40s. We will keep snow in the mountains this weekend and in the near future.
