KATU Weather Forecast

Friday, July 31, 2015

Unfortunately, the weather will remain extremely hot around the area today.

After a 103-degree day in the city yesterday, the Portland-Vancouver-Salem area will see only slight cooling for the afternoon. Daytime highs will be up around 100 degrees- for a second time.  The most pronounced cooling will be north of Woodland today- where daytime highs will drop to the low to mid 90s. Valley residents in Oregon won't see temperatures dip back down into the mid 90s until tomorrow.

Expect another warm night and early morning tomorrow. Overnight lows will drop to around 65 degrees. High temperatures will be around 95 degrees tomorrow. Sunday's highs will also be in the 90s- but slightly cooler. However, major cooling for the area will come by next Tuesday. The onshore flow of cooler air from the ocean will kick in and help cool the region next week.
