Question SUNNIEST/WARMEST areas of/around PORTLAND?

hi wondering where those sun pockets are closest to portland and also closest to mt. hood... my mom and her guy are looking to move closer to portland as his boys are there and he misses them...its quite a trek going over the mountain from bend to visit with them for all. soooooo...help me please research the sunshine factor for my mama as she really enjoys life in bend (central oregon for those of you not familiar with that area... ) and will miss the wonderful sunny days there should they move to the valley.

is eugene area sunnier/warmer than portland area?

There is Sun in Oregon? LOL, the only areas that I know of that dont get as much rain as willamette valley is central oregon, and maybe the Sandy area, I lived there 34 years and was so glad to finally dry out.

Portland really doesn't have microclimates- you are either in the wet part of the state (Willamette Valley and anything West of the Cascades) or you are in high desert (Eastern/Central) Oregon. Portland is wet and there is no getting around it.

And people wonder why Oregon is sOOOOooo green.
Maybe because it rains so much? Haha
I live in Sandy..The weather is CONSTANTLY changing here.
We get a lot of MIST, but not really rain.

Hood River valley, less than an hour east of PDX, is significantly sunnier and drier. It is nestled between the northeast slopes of Mt Hood and the Columbia River Gorge, and is filled with orchards.
So yes, Oregon does have microclimates, and this is the premier example!

No, Eugene is just as wet (and foggier) than Portland.

Default Oregon Weather

Seriously, some of the above posts don't know what they are talking about.
OREGON, as a whole, has very different climates. If you are on the West of the Cascades, you will have a TON of rain...however, this stops at Roseburg where the weather becomes good again. The other side of the mountains is 4 season desert dry type weather.
