Portland Weather

Yes, it rains in Portland but not as much as you may think. 

In October, days tend to be mild and partly sunny (highs in mid 60's). As the weather starts to cool, rain becomes more common and the leaves turn. Temperatures — and rain — both fall in November and December.

What to pack: Layers and a rain jacket.
