After a mostly sunny morning, Portland will see the return of some high clouds beginning about noon.

Temperatures will remain seasonal, according to the National Weather Service, and no rain is in the forecast during the day. Highs are expected to be near 74.

A weak cold front could bring some drizzle to the southern Washington coast and far northwest Oregon later this evening and into Wednesday morning. The clouds are from the tail end of a front expected to move into British Columbia and Washington by tonight. This moisture could make its way into Oregon and leave some sprinkles mostly near the northern Oregon coast.

Portland will see skies clear by late morning Wednesday. The high is expected to be about 73 degrees.

Mostly clear skies and mild temperatures continue Thursday. The high is expected to be around 74. But that may be the end of the string of dry, mostly clear days for the week.

Forecasters are looking at a new system moving in later in the day Friday and bringing rain during the weekend.
