PORTLAND -- The temperature in Portland Saturday afternoon climbed to a scorching 96 degrees, breaking the record high of 95 that was set 25 years ago.
Saturday was also the first time Portland saw 90-plus degree temperatures since August 25, 2010.
Sunday wasn't quite as hot but it was still an enjoyable summer-like day. The area high was 89 with some clouds.
The Oregon Coast was much cooler on Sunday with highs only in the 60s, and clouds may linger into the afternoon.
Then, the Portland area was also supposed to cool down - on Monday.
A cold front, passing to our north, will being an increase of clouds by late Monday. The result could be a little afternoon sun, but not much, said KGWMeteorologist Rod Hill Portland and to the south should remain dry, although Monday evening may be overcast.
He said on Tuesday, more clouds will start the day, followed by afternoon sun.
The latest forecast charts show a return to near 90 degree weather next weekend, Hill added.
