3 Record Highs Today

10:30pm Wednesday…

Today was the warmest May day in 6 years here in Portland…the first time we’ve been to 90 in May during that time as well.

It was hot and 3 records (that I’m aware of) were set today.  But at least this time of year the heat doesn’t stick around as long as it does in July.  In just 3 days we’ll be back in the 60s.  You might even briefly turn on the heat either Sunday or Monday mornings too, depending on your tolerance of cooler weather.  Okay, maybe that’s a bit dramatic, but possible.

We get a marine push along the coastline tomorrow for much cooler temps, then that cooler air surges inland for 10 degrees or more cooling Friday.

A cool upper-level trough moves overhead Saturday through Monday giving us showers at times, the it appears we go back to more mild (not hot) weather next week.  Of course Memorial Day weekend is just around the corner, but it’s still a bit too far away to know how the weather is looking.

    Made it to 87 on my Davis weather station at home today. About the same as yesterday. Not looking forward to this summer where its 90 or higher everyday til end of September. Pretty boring weather for 4-5 months here outside the few t-storms we get over here. Maybe we’ll get some boomers this year
