A warm and mild morning around the area is now looking likely to give way to the hottest weather we've had so far in 2015. Daytime highs will be near or at 100 degrees across the region. An Excessive Heat Warning is now posted for today and tomorrow afternoon. Salem area residents will see daytime highs between 101 and 103 today and tomorrow. Dangerous heat will spread from SW Washington to Southern Oregon. Overnight lows will be around the mid to upper 60s.
There will not be much of a break from the heat tomorrow. Daytime highs are expected to peak around 98 degrees here. This weekend's high temperatures will drop a bit more- into the low to mid 90s.
