...THE HOTTEST WEATHER OF THE YEAR SO FAR LIKELY ACROSS MUCH OF
SOUTHWEST WASHINGTON AND NORTHWEST OREGON THIS WEEKEND...
Summer weather is expected to take hold across Southwest
Washington and Northwest Oregon this weekend with the hottest
weather of the year so far across much of the area.
The warm up will take hold Friday with high temperatures in the
valleys reaching into the lower to mid 90s, then peaking Saturday
and Sunday in the 95 to 100 degree range. Temperatures Monday may
fall back into the 80s.
The coast is expected to reach into the 70s on Friday and the 80s
on Saturday. Sunday could be a transition day as cooling may start
to work its way northward along the coast, though the timing of
this is still a bit up in the air.
Temperatures in the 80s and into the 90s will be common at higher
elevations as well.
Prepare now for the coming hot weather. Stay hydrated, avoid
exertion in the heat of the day, and find an air conditioned
building if possible.
Area rivers are still running high and swift, while river
temperatures in the 50s are common. Use extreme caution around
area rivers, as fatalities in and around area rivers are way too
common in this type of early summer weather pattern.
