Another Heat Wave
multi-day heat wave will begin Wednesday. The hottest day of the summer
so far is possible on Thursday.
AREAS IMPACTED: Lowland locations AWAY from the coast…i.e. the Willamette
Valley and Columbia River Gorge.
High temperatures 95-100F. Low temperatures in the low to mid 60s may
provide some relief to those without air conditioning. Fire danger will
rise and may be especially high across Lane, Linn, Marion & Clackamas
Counties where less rain fell this past weekend.
Wednesday through Friday. The hottest temperatures in the next week will
likely be on Thursday.
90s may persist over the weekend and possibly even into early next week.
The hottest temperatures over the weekend and early next week will likely be
over the southern half of the Willamette Valley and in the central Columbia River
Gorge. Temperatures over the weekend and early next week should NOT be as
hot as Wednesday through Friday of this week.
