PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – A dip at the start keeps the weather very pleasant for the first part of our weekend. Temperatures around the Portland metro area will start in the 50s and 60s and then warm to the lower 80s. Expect cloud cover in the morning with the sun rising throughout the day.
Saturday is the day to prepare for the heat, if you don’t have a fan or some of the things that can help. Don’t forget the cooling shelters around the area. You can see how the day breaks down in the agenda which you can find in the slideshow below.
If you hop into one of the local parks, you can count on some shade in the morning, with more sun beaming in the afternoon. There will be a light northwest breeze to keep things comfortable. Temperatures should reach around 70°C for lunchtime, minus 80°C for dinner.
Clouds will hold for the Oregon Coast, but there should be a slice of blue every now and then. Temperatures will be in the upper 50s in the morning, warming to the mid 60s in the afternoon.
If you’re considering a summer hike near Government Camp, daytime highs will be in the low to mid 70s. Near 90s for The Dalles, about 5-10 degrees cooler on Hood River. Sunny, blue skies for central and eastern Oregon.
Have a wonderful Saturday.
