Rain...Mountain Snow On The Way...
Saturday night will stay mostly cloudy but dry...overnight lows in the low 40's...And your Sunday morning in the metro area starts out dry.
But...Rain starts early Sunday morning on the Coast, along with windy conditions. Strong winds will continue through the morning along with the rain. All in advance of the next cold front which moves onshore through the day.
Valley locations will see rain by mid to late morning. Rainfall totals will again be around a 1/4 to 1/2".
Expect more mountain snow, too. The snow level will remain around 4,000' Sunday with another 4-8" of snow possible.
More moisture makes it over the Cascades with Sunday's frontal system and that is expected to bring rain and mountain snow back to Central and Eastern Oregon through Monday morning.
Showers or rain continue through the week, with little break. Overnight lows will continue in the 40s, while daytime highs run a few degrees below average, in the low to mid 50s.
We had a record wet February for Portland, there's a chance to do that for March too...We've had about 6 and 1/3 inches so far...The wettest March on record at PDX is 2012 with 7.89" of rain.
