3pm Wednesday…It’s Hot!

Just got into work after running some errands…it’s real hot out there.

I notice it’s the hottest day of the year for quite a few locations.  Hillsboro, Scappoose, Troutdale (yesterday), and at my home it is up over 90, which didn’t happen yet this summer I think.  The Hillsboro temp is a record for the day as well.

East wind wasn’t as strong as I expected today, just briefly pushing into Troutdale during the overnight and morning hours.  In fact Troutdale was the hot spot with a 91 degree temp AT NOON!  Then it actually fell two degrees at 1pm as the wind clocked around to northwesterly and the dewpoint jumped.  Since then it’s been rising again just like all the other local observations. 

Weak marine push made it all the way into the south Willamette Valley this morning, and there should be a better push tomorrow into the entire valley.  As a result, we lower tomorrow’s high from 90 to 88.  Either way another very warm day, but just not scorching hot like today.

    You spoiled my fun Mark!

    I was just coming to mention it was the hottest day of the year out in Hillsboro and a record as well.

    The 96+(?) is not the record latest 96 though. Actually had a 97 on September 20th, 1952. Now there’s a fall/winter I want no part of.

    Didn’t the Farmer’s Almanac predict this heat wave ?? Kidding…I’m hoping for some breezes tonight. Last night it was nearly calm on Bald Peak all night…almost stagnant…

    93 at 3:00 PM in Salem. #18 for 2013. NWS has us at near 90 Thur, Fri, and Sat. So we may get to 20 days at 90 for the summer after all.

    I’m going to say it again. I really like the pattern change we will see early next week. If we can get this to plant it’s proverbial foot we will see the goods very soon.

    Can anyone say October snow?
