URGENT - WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Portland OR
256 PM PDT Thu Jun 22 2017

...Hot Weather Friday Afternoon Through the Weekend...

.A strong upper level ridge will build toward the Pacific
Northwest on Friday and strengthen through the weekend. This ridge
will result in increasingly hot weather over the next few days.
High temperatures will be in the low to mid 90s Friday over the
interior. Moderate east winds will develop for Saturday into early Sunday,
which will intensify the heating. Temperatures over the interior
increase to around 100 degrees for many locations on Saturday,
while many locations on the coast may see highs close to 90
degrees. Some marine influence may cool the southern Willamette
Valley going into Sunday, but most of the interior will likely be
just as warm on Sunday, if not a couple of degrees warmer.
The hot daytime temperatures will be compounded by warm overnight low
temperatures that are only expected to drop into the low to mid
60s on Friday and Saturday night. This extended period of hot
weather will increase the risk of heat related illnesses and
injuries.
