Wednesday morning dog walks will be wet. By afternoon we’ll see sun breaks.
The final day of fall will start off cool and showery with rain ending before lunchtime. The front that brought in all the rain on Tuesday has moved off and left only some showers for the start of the day. Wednesday will finish off with sun breaks and a high of 46.

Snow levels are hanging around 1,500 to 2,000 feet through Wednesday and any showers that fall this morning will be snow in the higher elevations and especially on the Cascade and Coast Range passes.

An upper level ridge will move in by Wednesday afternoon and lead to a cold night. Forecasters with the National Weather Service expect many areas to drop into the 20s by Thursday morning. Rural areas, and even likely in Portland, fog and freezing fog is possible for Thursday well into midday. Some locations may not break out of the fog. Those that do will eventually see mostly sunny skies and a high of 40.

Forecasters are also looking at a decent chance that a weak disturbance may bring some moisture into the valleys early on Friday offering up a lower elevation rain/snow mix for Friday morning. Most computer models do not show much precipitation with this system, but anything that does fall could cause issues. Be prepared for possible dicey driving conditions on Friday morning.
Currently the weekend looks to be mostly dry and cool. Just in time for the start of winter.
