This Week in Tigard

Welcome to your one-stop shopping for the latest news and events from the City of Tigard. This page will be updated each Monday.

The atmospheric river is rollin’ into the Pacific Northwest. What is an atmospheric river? Atmospheric rivers are relatively long, narrow regions in the atmosphere – like rivers in the sky – that transport most of the water vapor outside of the tropics. Be prepared for heavy rain Monday night and Tuesday morning. Clear the storm drain in the street by your home or office to prevent street flooding. For the latest on the forecast, follow the National Weather Service.
