Weekend rainfall sets daily record at PDX and keeps Portland on track for a normal water year. Saturday's rainfall of 1.80" was the 2nd wettest day of this water year, only behind the 1.88" that fell on October 22nd.
Of course precipitation news is not as good on Mt. Hood.

A tropical plume of moisture will push inland Sunday Jan. 4th and Sunday night, dumping heavy rain across much of western Washington. Heaviest rainfall will likely be north toward Seattle, but inches of rain could fall over the Willapa Hills near the Columbia River and across much of Cowlitz county.

Sunday's strong east winds, gusting 40-50 mph near the gorge and along the Columbia and possibly blowing to 70 mph at Crown Point will bring in dry air, allowing cold, freezing temperatures Sunday night.

A warm front has brought mild temperatures and high snow levels near 8,000 feet to our region! The news is good for holiday travelers who will find mountain passes with bare pavement and above freezing temperatures even at night through Thanksgiving morning.
