Portland metro Sunday weather: Soggy all week

Expect rain to continue at least until Wednesday. (

Portland is waking up to rain, sometimes heavy, on Sunday morning. Expect that to continue well into the week.

Temperatures are relatively mild, at 46 degrees at 7:30 a.m. with a forecast high of 55. Forecasters anticipate similar conditions in the early part of the week with rain continuing at least until Wednesday, when skies possibly drying out then with temperatures falling into the mid 30s.

Winds are strong on the Oregon coast, with gusts up to 60 miles an hour on the beaches until 10 a.m. Sunday. The National Weather Service forecasts a cool, wet week.

The mild temperatures are spoiling the start of the ski season on Mount Hood. Mt. Hood Meadows had planned to open this weekend, but called that off amid rain and temperatures in the 40s.

There’s a chance of snow in the mountains on Tuesday and Wednesday, but forecasts call for cold, dry conditions late in the week.
