Portland, Oregon weather forecast for Friday, June 3
PORTLAND, Oregon (KOIN) – Friday will be our weather day in between. In other words, we are between hot and humid weather and our next front. That comes with a 10 degree chill and a chance of showers, maybe 0.10-0.20″ for the whole day in Portland.
Here’s how it breaks down on Friday:
- Morning Commute: Light Rain, 50+
- Evening journey: increased risk of rain, 60 – 70 years
- Eastern/Central Oregon: Thunderstorms
Weekend Outlook: Soaking, 1-2″ of rain total, highs in the mid-60s, gusty for the coast, windy valley, possible thunderstorms on Sunday.
Saturday night Starlight Parade: Heavy rain at times, get those rubber boots and your best waterproof gear, 60s bottoms
Hydrological Outlook National Weather Service Pendleton OR
Periods of moderate to heavy rain associated with showers and thunderstorms will continue through Sunday over parts of central and eastern Washington and eastern Oregon. Several rounds of showers and thunderstorms over the next few days can produce up to 0.5 inches to 2 inches of precipitation, with the highest totals in the mountains.
This amount of precipitation over a fairly short period of time can lead to localized flooding. This will be especially true for areas that experienced heavy rain and flooding this past weekend. Rivers are already flowing fast and high, and additional rainfall and runoff are expected to cause increases this weekend through early next week.
Campers, hikers and other outdoor enthusiasts should watch for showers and thunderstorms developing over the next few days and seek higher ground if necessary. Never camp along streams, rivers and streams. Closely supervise children and pets to make sure they don’t get too close to the water’s edge.
