No Relief: Portland Near 100, Oregon Coast in 80s

(Oregon Coast) – The headline on the website for Portland's National Weather Service (NWS) office is in all caps: THE HOTTEST WEATHER OF THE YEAR SO FAR LIKELY ACROSS MUCH OF SOUTHWEST WASHINGTON AND NORTHWEST OREGON THIS WEEKEND. That says it all.

Well, almost all, that is. Inland Oregon is headed for the 90s, maybe even closer to 100 this weekend. Saturday and Sunday on the Oregon coast won't offer a ton of relief either: temps will be in the 80s there.

“Summer weather is expected to take hold across Southwest Washington and Northwest Oregon this weekend,” the NWS said. “The warm up will take hold Friday with high temperatures in the valleys reaching into the lower to mid 90s, then peaking Saturday and Sunday in the 95 to 100 degree range.”

Meanwhile, the coast will reach into the 70s on Friday but then into the 80s on Saturday and Sunday.

On Monday, temps in Portland could fall back into the 80s, but even the Oregon coast could get a cool-off a little earlier.

“Sunday could be a transition day as cooling may start to work its way northward along the coast, though the timing of this is still a bit up in the air,” the NWS said.

Higher elevations will also see extremely high temperatures, the NWS said.

The agency said you should prepare now for the coming hot weather. Stay hydrated, avoid
exertion in the heat of the day, and find an air conditioned building if possible.

Those playing around area rivers to cool off should be warned that the waters are still very cold, often in the 50s. They're also still running high and swift. The NWS said to use extreme caution around local rivers as fatalities are far too common this time of year because of these patterns.

For the Oregon coast, the chance of sunburn on the beaches is extremely high with days like these, especially near the ocean. The sea reflects sunlight back and sometimes doubles your exposure, even if you're on rocky bluffs like those around Yachats or Depoe Bay.

The NWS said the start of all this is a flat upper ridge with a westerly flow off the coast and into the Pacific Northwest. It's keeping conditions quite pleasant for the next couple of days before it starts to stir things it up.

“The upper ridge significantly amplifies late this week and this weekend for likely the warmest weather of this year so far over the area,” the NWS said. “Look for some east winds over the weekend.” Where to stay for this - Where to eat - Map and Virtual Tour - Ful Oregon Coast Weather
