It’s a beautiful and toasty way to start the work week in the Portland metro area. Temps have soared close to 90 degrees around Portland this afternoon.
Nature’s air conditioner is back tomorrow. More onshore flow tomorrow means much cooler temperatures with highs in the upper 70s after patchy morning clouds. Nights will be very comfortable too, dropping into the 50s.
The marine layer will be thicker on Wednesday, with most areas west of the Cascades waking up to overcast skies. It will likely take until the afternoon to break through the clouds that day, which will keep temperatures in the mid 70s. The rest of the work week will feature brief morning clouds and lots of afternoon sunshine.
Get ready for a very hot weekend. A strong ridge of high pressure will settle in Saturday and Sunday, sending temps soaring into the mid 90s.
There’s no sign of a big cooldown or wet weather for the next 7-10 days.
