Portland ends the workweek with a day of clear skies and warm temperatures. If that’s what you enjoy, soak it up. Much like previous weekends this June, the last weekend will be wet.

Any light cloud cover hanging around Friday morning will quickly dissipate leaving sunny skies and temperatures close to what we saw Thursday. Highs will be near 86 in Portland and could climb near 90 for areas south of the city. Clouds will increase overnight as a front pushes into the area from the north.

A few light showers are possible early Saturday, but for the most part, the day should stay dry but cloudy, according to the National Weather Service. Temperatures will dive 10-15 degrees from Friday’s high as the system moving in from the north is carrying plenty of cold air. Portland will likely see a high temp of 73, quite cool for this time of year.

Rain chances increase Sunday to 70% for all of northwest Oregon and southwest Washington. There is a slight chance for thunderstorms and hail. High temperatures take another dip as some locations may not make it to 70. Snow is even possible for the higher Cascades. Snow levels may fall as low as 5,000 feet. It’s unlikely this will hinder pass level travel, but drivers may see some snow mixed in with the rain on the last weekend of June.
