PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The National Weather Service in Portland says hot weather will continue in Oregon through Wednesday.
Monday and Tuesday are expected to be the hottest days with highs in the interior of western Oregon in the 90s and highs on the east side of the Cascades over 100.
A heat advisory is in effect until 9 p.m. Tuesday for northwest Oregon, including the Portland metro area.
The Weather Service office in Pendleton says a heat advisory is in effect in the eastern Columbia River Gorge through 10 p.m. Tuesday. Isolated thunderstorms are possible Monday in Deschutes and Jefferson counties.
Forecasters say an onshore flow expected Thursday and Friday should bring some relief from the hot spell by the end of the week.
