PORTLAND -- Ninety-degree temperatures are in the Portland forecast for the first time in 2013.

Weather charts show hot weather this coming Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. As July approaches, it should come as no surprise that hot weather is in the 7-day forecast. Portland averages 13 days each year with temperatures of 90 degrees or hotter.

Here is a list of the first 90 degree days over the past 10 years:

Year 1st 90-degree day # of 90-degree days

2003 June 4 22

2004 June 17 12

2005 May 27 15

2006 May 15 21

2007 May 30 9

2008 May 16 15

2009 June 3 24 (all time record)

2010 July 7 11

2011 Aug. 20 7

2012 Aug. 4 11 days

All years above the average number of 13 90-degree days saw their first hot day before June 10th. If this summer follows the pattern of the last 10 years, PDX will likely see 12 or less 90-degree or hotter days this summer.
