A Little Cooler Today...But Not Much.
Our high temperature topped out at 97 degrees Thursday, warmest day of the year so far for Portland. In Eugene the thermometer reached 100, that's a new record.
High pressure will continue to keep the Pacific Northwest sunny, dry and very warm through the weekend. Overnight lows will fall into the upper 50s to lower 60s. Winds will be light for the first part of the day.
On Friday the ridge will drift south a bit. That will allow a slightly stronger on shore flow. Afternoon highs will be about 3 to 4 degrees cooler Friday. On the 4th of July the pattern continues sunny and very warm with highs in the low to middle 90s.
Sunday we heat back up into the mid to upper 90's for the valley and the merto area.
Long term we should see temperatures drop into the 80s briefly next week. Still no rain in the forecast until MAYBE NEXT WEEKEND.

Saturday Evening Fireworks Forecast: Dry...Not Much Wind...50's on the coast...70's inland.
