Excessive Heat Watch

URGENT - WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Portland OR
511 PM PDT Tue Jun 22 2021

...HEAT WAVE EXPECTED LATE THIS WEEK THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK...

.Strong high pressure over the Pacific Northwest will bring a
stretch of unseasonably hot weather to much of southwest
Washington and northwest Oregon beginning Friday and lasting
through at least next Monday. High temperatures will run 20 to 25
degrees above normal for late June at many locations, putting
numerous daily records and perhaps a few monthly high temperature
records in jeopardy. Overnight lows will also be unseasonably
warm, limiting the amount of relief from the heat and contributing
to increased risk of heat related illnesses. The heat is expected
to peak this weekend, with conditions remaining hot into Monday
and then gradually trending downward towards the middle of next
week.
