Monday is shaping up to be the fourth day in a row above 90° and we’ll likely add another two after today. Sunday’s high of 96° tied the old record of 96° set back in 1951 and Sunday night’s low temperature of 63° tied the record for the warmest low ever recorded on the first of July.
We’ve warmed up as a large ridge of high pressure has centered itself right over western Oregon. This has brought in a warm air mass from the south, it’s keeping us cloud free and will continue to keep us warm for the next several days. Monday and Tuesday we’ll top out in the mid 90s and still in the low 90s Wednesday.
The jet stream will start to level out mid week and by the Forth of July we’ll start to cool down a bit, although we’ll still be above average in the mid 80s through this weekend.
Have a great Monday and stay cool!
