A soggy forecast is ahead for more than one day this week.
It's a cool, cloudy and wet start to the day around the metro area. However, today's showers will end by afternoon - moving east into the Cascades and Gorge by mid-morning. Expect afternoon clearing and daytime highs in the mid 70s. The potential for afternoon thunderstorms increases in Central and Eastern Oregon around the current wildfires. There is also heightened fire danger due to lightning potential over Central Washington.
Tonight, skies will turn mostly cloudy. Overnight lows drop to the mid 50s. Rain moves back into the metro area from the west tonight. Tomorrow looks like a much wetter day around here. There is a chance of isolated thunderstorms around the valley and near the Cascades tomorrow afternoon. Daytime highs will be near 75 degrees.
