Sunny and warmer for Monday, but showers return for Tuesday

PORTLAND, Ore. — Monday’s morning clouds burn off for most of us this afternoon -at least in the Valley. Highs top out in the upper 70s today.

The Coast stays cloudy much of the day, and there’s a slight chance of showers in the Coast Range and the Cascades today. Higher terrain across Eastern Oregon could also see a shower today.  Central Oregon turns out mostly sunny, as does the Gorge. Expect a gusty west breeze through the Gorge today.

A weak weather system rolls in overnight kicking up more clouds and bringing a shower threat to the entire region tomorrow, with another one due in Wednesday.

After that, it looks like we’ve got a generally sunny and seasonably warm Fourth of July holiday weekend forecast.

Have a great day and take care of one another
