What a mid-summer scorcher today, take a look at the high temps!
We get the high temperature from official observing sites every 6 hours, which in summer is 5pm and 11pm. Now the 5pm temperature IS 98 degrees, which means it’s possible we’ve gone to 99 and don’t know it. Portland NWS also puts out a climate summary around 7:20pm just for the PDX site which means for that site only we’ll really know what the high temp was. Got all that???
