High Temp Records Fall Around Portland Area, Mercury Climbing Higher Tomorrow

Oh boy, I can't wait.

I hit the wall at work at ten o:clock last night.
It was still in the high 90's even then.
Guzzling Gatorade and water to stay hydrated is all good and well until you wake up five times during the night because you gotta piss like a ruptured goat.
Not getting good sleep on top of working in this heat is kicking my narrow little ass.
Come on Weekend!

Records fall as excessive heat warning continues

PORTLAND, Ore. – An Excessive Heat Warning issued by the National Weather Service continues Wednesday as temperatures are expected to get into the mid-100s in northwest Oregon and southwest Washington.
Portland hit 103 degrees Wednesday and broke the record for August 2, which had been 96 degrees. Nearby Hillsboro (104), Troutdale (105) and McMinnville (105) also broke records.
Salem broke a record with 107 degrees on Wednesday.

Thursday's forecast calls for 106 degrees in Portland, which would also be a record.
The heat warning went 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.
7-day forecast at a glance
At the Oregon Coast, temperatures soared into the 90s on Wednesday.

Friday could also reach triple digits. The extreme heat will end by the weekend, but temperatures will only fall back to the 90s.
The all-time heat record for Portland is 107 degrees, reached in 1942, 1965 and 1981.

I wouldn't be the least but surprised to see it get that hot where I work, it is basically straight across the river from Troutdale and as you can see up above, a bit hotter too for some reason.
