Looks like another summer heatwave headed our way.

Fair skies in the forecast tonight and mild temperatures. Overnight lows will only fall into the upper 50s to lower 60s.  Strong high pressure all across the northwest will bring a stretch of sunny and very hot weather beginning Wednesday.

Afternoon highs will jump into the lower to middle 90s Wednesday and reach the upper 90s Thursday. Some locations in the Willamette Valley might flirt with 100 degrees later this week.  A Heat Advisory will start  in the morning beginning at 11 AM. Fire danger is also on the rise so a Red Flag Warning for critical fire weather  will also be in effect.

Hot, sunny and dry weather will continue for the rest of the week and into the weekend.

Tonights low 62

Wednesdays high 93
