Oregon Might Be In For A Chilly And Wet Winter: In spite of the chilly and rainy weather towards the end of the previous month, Portland nevertheless experienced its warmest October on record.
According to Andy Bryant of the National Weather Service, the average high temperature at Portland International Airport was around 1.5 degrees hotter than the previous record. This was determined by taking measurements at the airport.
According to Bryant, “we also had 12 days with high temperatures of 80 degrees or higher,” whereas the previous record for the Portland Airport was only six. Therefore, we didn’t just go and break it by a little bit, we went and broke it by a lot.

According to him, the first three weeks of October were exceptionally hot and dry, and then there was a fairly dramatic change toward the end of the month.
According to Bryant, the present pattern of chilly and rainy weather is expected to persist in the Pacific Northwest for at least the next couple of weeks. Snow levels are expected to fluctuate, and it is possible that the passes in the Cascade Mountains will receive up to one foot of snow by the following week.
As of this past Tuesday, the use of studded tyres is now legal in the state of Oregon. However, chains or traction tyres are still required for anyone driving across the state’s mountain passes. Snowfall has already been observed in parts of Eastern Oregon, including Bend.
Bryant urged everyone to “be prepared” by saying something to that effect. “Now is the time to start giving some thought to the preparations you have made for the upcoming winter. Because it is quite annoying when all of a sudden the prediction predicts that there will be six inches of snow or freezing rain, but you haven’t actually done anything to prepare for it. Right now is the time to give that some thought.
According to Bryant’s projections for the longer term, the occurrence of La Nia conditions is anticipated to be observed for the third winter in a succession.

According to him, “La Nia” simply refers to sea surface temperatures in the equatorial Pacific that are lower than average, and the result of this phenomenon in the Pacific Northwest is often conditions that are cooler and wetter than normal.
“However, I would like to qualify that… We have experienced everything from warm and dry weather to really cold and wet weather. On the whole, however, the effects of La Nia tend to bring about conditions that are both cooler and wetter than those that would otherwise prevail.
