A late-week heat wave arrives as temps are expected to bump into the mid-upper 90s by Thursday this week. So enjoy Monday and Tuesday’s high temps in the upper 80s.
Wildfire smoke stays south and east of the valley, but it will try to move north on Tuesday. This may push some haze over the Cascades and into areas of the southern Willamette Valley. We will have to monitor the situation, but for now it doesn’t appear to be too smoky around Portland this week.
No rain for Portland this week with a dry expected for the month of July.
Potential for dry thunderstorms around the Bootleg fire on Tuesday. We may have another round of lightning this week. Fingers crossed we do not have any substantial wildfires as a result.
