However, when rainfall does occur during the region's rainy season November to April, it is rare to see a sunny, dry day. The city receives approximately 155 days of precipitation a year, frequently in the form of a light drizzle or fine mist. Visitors should be sure to pack an umbrella and raincoat if visiting in the winter.

The summer season is marked by mild temperatures, low humidity and predominantly sunny skies. Although temperatures can reach the mid-90s in the summer, northwesterly winds from the Pacific Ocean keep most days in the low 80s. June is considered the perfect month to visit Portland, many of the roses are blooming and days are long and warm.
