    Showers, Storms for Portland, Oregon Through Friday

    Rain and thunderstorms will affect Portland and parts of interior Oregon Friday.

    A slow-moving storm system will continue to drift inland from the Pacific Ocean during the day, producing rounds of rain and thunder.

    While the threat for severe thunderstorms has greatly decreased, rainfall can be heavy at times, creating the risk for flooding across northern Oregon. In the higher terrain, there is a continued threat for mudslides.

    A couple of stronger thunderstorms can contain gusty winds and hail, especially across eastern Washington and northern Idaho.

    On Thursday, heavy showers and thunderstorms produced 1 to 1.5 inches of rain in one hour in Salem, Ore. Hail the size of golf balls was reported in Bend, Ore. and winds gusted 60 to 70 mph just west of Redmond, Ore.

    Wind damage was reported in Pendleton, Ore., and there were reports of mudslides to their north and east.

    Over the weekend, the storm system will move toward the northern Rockies and high pressure will build in from the west. This will allow a warming and sunny trend over the region.
