Friday’s rainfall tied a record from 1969 in Portland with 1.87 inches, according to the National Weather Service.
Other cities in northwest Oregon saw even more rain. Astoria doubled its previous record of 2.12 inches (also form 1969) with 4.07 inches.
Today is expected to bring scattered showers with .10 to .25 inches of rain. The afternoon might dry out before a 90% chance of rain overnight.
The cold front that made Friday so windy has moved on to southern Oregon. The current temperature at Portland International Airport is 48 degrees, which is also the forecasted high temperature, according to the National Weather Service. The temperature is expected to remain consistent with an overnight low of 42 degrees and a high of 44 Sunday in Portland.
Snow levels will likely drop Sunday, and the Cascade passes should expect snow most of the weekend. In Clackamas County, elections officials encouraged voters to get completed ballots for Tuesday’s general election in early due to the forecast.
“Certain areas of Clackamas County may experience snow and other inclement weather which can limit a voters ability to drop off their ballot at an authorized drop box or in the U.S. Mail,” the elections department said in a news release. “Turning in your ballot early will ensure your vote counts in this election regardless of what the weather brings.”
Back in Portland, the rain will continue Monday before Tuesday and Wednesday bring drier weather.
