Sizzle! Sunny skies and hot weather are back. High temperatures today will climb into the lower 90s.
If you think it's hot here try Southern Oregon. Triple digit temperatures will likely greet our neighbors down state. I don't see much relief from the hot weather until Thursday. Late in the week cooler air will arrive from the Oregon Coast.
Portland averages over 4 days a month in July with temperatures above 90 degrees. Today and tomorrow will be the first for the month. I'm also pretty sure we'll see many more days of 90 degrees plus before the end of the month.
quick additional note. Because of the hot weather a fire weather watch is in effect until tonight for the Coast Range from Cottage Grove to near McMinnville. The watch was issued because of the dry and hot conditions in that part of the state.
