EUGENE, Ore. – Parts of Oregon and Washington are facing the possibility of all time record high temperatures this weekend.
The heat is likely to hit triple digits Saturday, and Sunday will bring even warmer temperatures with highs closer to 110 degrees.
This comes as the west coast has dealt with low rain and snowfall over the past year, leaving the area in a historic severe drought and at a high risk for wildfires. Lane County recently declared a drought emergency.
President Joe Biden has reportedly met with the Federal Emergency Management Agency this week and will hold another meeting next week with governors of western states to discuss the extreme weather conditions.
