Unusually warm and dry weekend weather ahead

Weather

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Pinch me, because I think it might be July.

This weekend will feel nothing like the middle of May. The normal maximum temperature for the month of May is 69 in Portland. The normal maximum temperature for the month of July is 81. What’s the forecast for today? If you guessed low to mid-80s, you’re correct!

Stepping out the door in the morning will be that special time of day when you’re not roasting under the sun. The sky will be clear and as a result, temperatures will fall to the upper 40s. As upper-level ridging takes over this weekend so will those unusually warm temperatures.

Daytime highs will hover in the low 80s in the Willamette Valley. Going to the gorge this weekend? Pack lots of water because highs may reach the mid 80’s. The coast is the one place where you can chill out under partly cloudy skies and temps in the low to mid 60’s. Go fly a kite in the afternoon. A northerly breeze will pick up later today.
