Increasing rain this morning. Look for up to .25" of total rainfall through this evening. Snow levels today will be near or just above 4,000 feet. Occasional showers continue Saturday with similar snow levels on Mt. Hood. It is possible, that Saturday has nice periods of dry weather during the daylight hours.
A strong cold front arrives Saturday overnight, bringing periods of steady rain into Sunday morning. Portland will see rain change to showers with temps in the 40s. The snow level will drop from 2,000 feet early morning to near 1,000 feet during the day. High metro hills will likely see at least some snow. The chance of dustings to 2" of snow increases Sunday night near and above 500 feet.
Monday morning is still a close call. The city center of Portland could see a rain or a snow mix with temps in the upper 30s or see a period of snowy weather with light accumulations that would quickly melt during the afternoon as temps warm to 40 degrees.
