Although Portland has a reputation for being covered in cloudiness all year, we typically find that from November through May, you can expect 40 degree weather with occasional rain. A few days in the spring we get some single days of beautiful 70 degree weather. While in the summer you can expect anything from 75 to 100 between June through October.
