PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

An excessive heat watch takes effect for much of the region this weekend with the potential for record-breaking high temperatures.

The National Weather Service said temperatures will begin climbing on Friday, with the worst of the heat expected on Saturday and Sunday.

The excessive heat watch lasts from Saturday morning through Sunday evening.

Temperatures this weekend will reach into the upper 90s and possibly even break 100. That would be the earliest some areas have seen temperatures that high.

The excessive heat watch includes the Willamette Valley, Coast Range, Cascade foothills, Columbia River Gorge, Upper Hood River Valley and parts of southwestern Washington.
