Portland's high of 96 degrees Sunday is a new record for the date. The old record for July 5th was 94, back in 1960.
Sunny skies and hot temperatures in the 90s Monday - Wednesday. A break in the heat wave is still on track for Thursday or Friday, followed by temps in the 70s this weekend. At this time, I see no rain in sight.
Coast temperatures continue to be in the 60s and 70s with mostly sunny skies after early cloudiness.
