PORTLAND – Portland’s sunshine on Thursday might seem to dispel the latest national study ranking Portland in the top 5.

This study looked at which U.S. cities have the most cloudy days. It ranked Portland as the No. 5 cloudiest city in America.

Juneau, Alaska earned the top spot, followed by Anchorage, Alaska; Olympia, Wash.; Seattle, Wash. and then Portland.

The study was conducted by the “Sperling’s Best Places” website, using "cloud cover" percentages compiled over a one-year span.
