Another heat wave starts today
After a cool, rainy weekend, we're heading into our next round of heat beginning today with the mid 90s in Portland and the Metro area.
Fire danger is high across the region and a Red Flag Warning will be in place across the region from today through late Thursday night. Gusty wind conditions, dry fuels and hot temperatures combine to create those fire concerns.
A Heat Advisory will be in effect again today through Friday for the Willamette Valley. Some areas in the Central and Southern Valley will likely reach triple digit heat, especially tomorrow. Thursday is expected to be the hottest day of the week.
So far this year we've had 18 days of 90 degrees or higher. Our record is 24, and we're on our way to tying that this week.
Today - 95
Tonight - 65
Thursday - 99
