Cooler and more comfortable weather is ahead for valley residents this week.
After Portland tied the record of 101 degrees yesterday, the sweltering heat is gone for now. A cooler, marine layer sits over the valleys this morning. Temperatures will start out in the sixties- then end up in the upper 70s for daytime highs. Skies will turn partly cloudy. Temperatures will be at least 20 degrees cooler in all locations west of the Cascades. Overnight lows will be in the mid 50s.
The heat is still on for Central and Eastern Oregon where daytime highs will be near 90 degrees. A Red Flag Warning is posted for much of the eastern half of the state. Fire danger will be high do to low humidity, high heat, lightning from possible thunderstorms and gusty wind.
The rest of the week looks as comfortable as today's forecast! Most mornings will start out with clouds, then break for afternoon sunshine. Daytime highs will stay generally in the mid to upper 70s.
