Fog and clouds start out the day west of the Cascades -- but that's not how it's going to be all day. Friday looking quite beautiful in the afternoon with mostly to partly sunny skies across the whole region. Some gorge winds picking up this afternoon and evening. That will keep the fog away east of I-205 at night and tomorrow morning. Groundhog Day looks to be dry and, if you’re near the gorge winds, a shadow for the groundhog and 6 more weeks of winter. But at the Oregon Zoo, where they ask their resident hedgehog (yes, a hedgehog) about when winter will end — I think it will be foggy enough to call for an early spring in the NW.
