Tuesday: Another Record Warm Day

11pm Tuesday…

It was another spectacular “June in March” day west of the Cascades.  Check out those highs!

Todays Observed Highs OrWa 2017

First day above 70 in Portland, a full month earlier than last year

First 70 Degree Day Heatwave

The strong east wind is transporting slightly “cooler” air into the central/east metro area.  Troutdale only made it to 65 yet Aurora was 79!  Records were set again in Astoria, Salem, & Eugene.

Record Highs Cities

Tomorrow the east wind dies off the 2nd part of the day; add in full sunshine and Portland should see the warmest temperature of the week, into the lower 70s.  At the same time the switch to onshore flow south of Salem and along the coastline drops temps there.

Onshore flow and lots of clouds push us back down into normal territory Thursday and beyond.

Enjoy one more day of sunshine and very warm temps!

    It doesn’t get any warmer than this- in winter. Yesterday my maximum was 73.2F- that’s a new record for me for a date within the winter season (Dec.21-March20).

    This warm sunshine has been really nice!

  4. Noted : lowes were inaccurate lol.

  5. I just hope no more fires for a while, two in cowlitz county is enough.

    So Mark, are there any “Red Flag” warnings yet?

    55 degrees right now. Nice warm August morning. Wait, it’s the middle of March. Pretty crazy. Seattle broke it’s record high for the day yesterday by 16 degrees. The sun and warmth have felt nice, but the wind and very low humidity can go pack sand. It would be nice to have a spring this year.
