Friday, July 3rd
A Little Cooler Today...But Not Much.
Our high temperature topped out at 97 degrees Friday, 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 for at least a few more days. Under fair skies tonight lows will fall into the upper 50s to lower 60s. Winds will become light and variable after midnight.
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.
Long term we should see temperatures drop into the 80s briefly next week. Still no much needed rain in the forecast.
Friday - 94
Friday Night - 64
