Heating Up Sunday...And That's Just The Start!!!
Lighter wind and seasonal high temperatures highlighted Saturday's weather. Portland hit 80 degrees, just about average, but about ten to fifteen degrees cooler than what you'll get Sunday.
There's an EXCESSIVE HEAT WATCH in effect from the National Weather Service from Monday morning to Tuesday night for the valley, metro area, Clark and Cowlitz counties and the west end of the Gorge, with highs in the upper 90's to triple digits possible.
High pressure and a heat trough will also cause the wind to shift, coming from the east instead of the west. That could bring some wildfire smoke into the Metro area and reduce the air quality a bit. It's something we'll be monitoring as part of the forecast.
It is not going to cool off in the overnight hours. Overnight lows are expected in the low to mid 60s through the week.
A break from the 90s may come toward the end of the week, but still near 90 at that.
Tonight - Clear, mild - 58
Sunday - Mild start, heating up fast - 94
Monday - Might be hottest day of week - 97
Tuesday - Still hot! - 96
