Current Weather and Forecast

Portland's weather in late July and early August is the best of the year: daytime highs are generally around 80 with low humidity, while nighttime lows are 60-65. Rain is always a possibility in the Pacific Northwest, even though average monthly rainfall this time of year is about an inch. A light raincoat or shell is advisable. Seattle averages 2-5 degrees cooler.

Portland and the entire Pacific Northwest are casual. Dinner jackets are needed only at the most exclusive of restaurants, Sport shirts and jeans are common at "nice" restaurants and symphony concerts (to the dismay of some). Good, comfortable walking shoes are advisable both for city walking and for numerous hiking opportunities.
