Sunday Morning Drizzle, Some Afternoon Sunshine...
We're done with any heavier rainfall or snow for while. Sunday morning early could see some drizzle around the metro area, SW Washington, the West end of the Gorge. More likely there will be drizzly periods on the coast. But less of a chance for the central valley and central coast than to the North. Later in the day we'll see some clearing, with highs in the low 50's along the I-5 corridor.
Temperatures will feel spring-like this upcoming week as we leave February and enter March. Tuesday will be a few degrees cooler behind a cold front, then by Thursday, we may hit 60 degrees in Portland. Average highs in Portland this time of year are near the mid 50's. And 60's aren't so out of the ordinary, we've even hit 71 in Portland in February, as we get into March we'll be looking at record highs into the 70's and even 80's.
If you're traveling the mountain passes, there isn't much new snow to come for awhile, but still some on the roads, and the chance for some freezing drizzle early on Mt Hood. But the snow level will be going up to 3,000 feet, so things will get a little slushy around Government Camp and SkiBowl.
East of the Cascades could start out cloudy, but even the cloudy areas will clear out for lots of sunshine during the day with temperatures in the 40's and 50's.
Tonight's low 41
