It’s November, and even if you’re not ready for our first cold streak in the Pacific Northwest, the cold has arrived.
The Portland Oregon metropolitan area will be hosting a polar vortex that will bring the chilly arctic air of the north, and mix with our year round marine climate, to create possible freezing rain.
Temperatures are expected to drop into the lower 30’s by Tuesday morning, and east winds might bring gusts of over 70 mph to the areas around Troutdale, Fairview, and Wood Village, and near 40 mph in inner Portland.
Most of the United States will experience this cold streak, as the Southwest, Hawaii, Alaska, and Florida will be the only areas to escape the upcoming arctic blast that the polar vortex will surely bring.
