It's going to get...
Well maybe I should write a little more, other wise Frank, our web guru will get a bit upset.
Here's the scoop. Friday through Monday will be the longest and hottest weather Portland has seen since last summer. Will we set any records? The answer I think is yes. Saturday temperatures will hit the upper 90s, that's about 25 degrees above normal for this time of year. 96 degrees is the existing record for Saturday. I think we'll either tie that or go slightly above.
It's going to be hard to escape the hot temperatures. Even the normally mild Oregon Coast will see temperatures in the 80s on Friday and Saturday. Inland Highs will climb into the low 90s.
But wait there's more... Central and Eastern Oregon are going simply bake. Sunday will be the hottest day east of the Cascades. Temperatures will climb between 97 to 104 degrees. That's Africa hot!
Temperatures will gradually cool down but it's going to take a few days. Monday the thermometer will back off to around 90. We'll also have to keep and eye out for the potentual for Thunderstorms near the Cascades. I don't think it will be until the middle of next week when temperatures get back down to near normal.
