It's Going To Be Hotter Than Fuck Later This Week, 106-110 Degrees Predicted In Portland On Thursday

Depending on which forecast you look at, it's supposed to be hotter than Phoenix Fucking Arizona on Thursday.

One computer model predicted 113 for crying out loud! Thankfully the likelihood of that is slim.

That kind of heat kills people around here, we just don't see that kind of shit.

The latest predictions as of right now are shooting for 106 on Thursday but three or four days of over 100 is not good.

It's quite possible that multiple high temperature records could be broken.

It's going to be a miserable sonofabitch at work either way.

PORTLAND, Ore. – The National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Warning for much of this week as temperatures are expected to get into the 100s in northwest Oregon and southwest Washington.

The warning goes into effect at noon on Tuesday and is scheduled to last until 11 p.m. Friday in the Willamette Valley, Coast Range, Cascade Foothills, Cascades, Columbia River Gorge and Upper Hood River Valley.

KGW meteorologist Chris McGinness forecasts a high of 99 degrees on Tuesday, which would tie a record for Aug. 1. McGinness said Portland could get up to 105 degrees on Wednesday, which would be an Aug. 2 record, and 106 degrees on Thursday, which would also be a record.

"For some perspective, the 2009 heat wave brought temps at Portland International Airport over 100 on three consecutive days, including back-to-back 106-degree readings on July 28 and 29," he said. "This week looks similar, and a fourth 100-degree day is not out of the question on Friday."

The all-time heat record for Portland is 107 degrees, reached in 1942, 1965 and 1981.

"Right now it looks like even the coast will get quite hot. Winds will either die down or shift, allowing for at least one day -- Wednesday -- around 90," McGinness said Monday morning. "By Friday, onshore flow should cool the coast back to normal temperatures, but right now it doesn't look like that cooler air makes it inland until Saturday or Sunday."

When this heat bubble heads East then it is going to look like Eastern Oregon and Washington will be under a magnifying glass.
