Dangerous Heat for the Northwest Thursday and Friday Jul 11, 2018

High pressure is dominating the forecast for the Northwest over the next few days.  This means strong sunshine and hot temperatures are in the forecast for the states of Washington, Oregon and Idaho.

Heat Alerts

Areas west of the Cascades are already under Excessive Heat Watches that will go through early next week.  Monsoonal moisture streaming out of the South will allow temperatures to feel like the lower 100s.  This could lead to an increased risk of heat related illnesses.

Temperature Forecast

Here is a look at the high temperature forecast over the next 3 days.  Again, this is just the air temperature…we will also have monsoonal moisture making it feel even hotter.  Expect afternoon highs to be 15°-25° above normal over the next several afternoons.
