As of 4pm it’s 88 degrees in Portland, that’s at the official observation site at PDX. We may yet hit 90 today…we’ll see. Either way we broke the 85 degree record for May 1st. We also tied a record for a warm low temperature; the low was only 53 degrees this morning.
This morning’s 850mb temp (around 5,000′) over Salem was 19.2 degrees, more like midsummer than May Day!
Astoria, Salem, and McMinnville have tied or broken records for the day as well.
