PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – It’s an excellent weekend to get outside. Wake up and smell the sweet scent of summer, low 60’s and mostly sunny as you get out the door. Daytime highs will max out in the low 80s Saturday and Sunday afternoon.

Then, as soon as you get comfortable with that, bam! Monday comes along and drives our thermometer right up to the low to mid 90s.

Watch for new fire starts as outdoor activities increase. It just takes one deserted campfire to spread into a large fire, especially as this dry stretch sets up across the state into next week.
