Record heat in NW: Record Heat Northwest, Just a week into summer and the Pacific Northwest is ready to throw in the towel — or whatever it is you do when you’re being baked like a Sunday casserole.
Portland, Oregon, has already broken a 2003 record for most days in June with temperatures at least 90 degrees — seven days. Forecasters predict Sunday’s temperature will peak at 88.
But there were plenty of records to go around on Saturday. In Oregon, Medford hit 104. Roseburg topped at 101.

In Washington, Pasco maxed out at 111. Walla Walla hit 109 and Yakima made it to 108.
Temperatures will continue to be 20 degrees above average in this region of the country, CNN meteorologist Michael Guy said.
The heat wave will penetrate well inland, to the Mountain states, where temperatures could hit 100 degrees or more in Utah, Nevada, Montana and Idaho.
The National Weather Service predicted a “very hot weekend in store for much of the western US,” the agency tweeted. “Stay cool and beat the heat.”
