PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – We are now moving on to the second half of our late July heat wave.
Temperatures will be mild in the morning and sweltering by the afternoon. This will be the fifth day in a row of 90-degree temperatures. Daytime highs around Portland should top off around the upper 90s and potentially some locations hitting the triple-digits. The record high temperature in Portland is 106 degrees, which was established in 2009 during an equally impressive heat wave. We should not reach those temperatures this time around.
There will be some in central and eastern Oregon that can hit that type of heat. The Dalles will likely see highs back around 110 degrees.
