Clouds and a system carrying cold air are moving into Portland on Saturday and will drop the high by nearly 15 degrees from Friday.

Saturday should stay dry before the chance of rain increases Saturday night and into Sunday morning. The high on Saturday will be near 72 in Portland with a breeze between 7 and 11 mph, and gusts as high as 18 mph, according to the national weather service.

Rain will likely begin Saturday night in the Portland metro and continue through Sunday, before a partly sunny start of the workweek on Monday with a high near 77.

Snow is possible at higher elevations, although accumulation below 5500 feet is unlikely.
