Once again, the core of the nation’s heat remains focused on the west coast.
Over the next few days, excessive heat will once again plague cities like San Francisco, Portland, and Seattle. Smoke and haze will also be widespread, creating significant air quality issues.
In fact, Portland, Oregon, could make a run at its all-time record high temperature (107°) today and Thursday.
If you or someone you know is traveling to these cities, prepare for sensitive heat and air quality issues!
By the weekend, the ridge of high pressure bringing these heat issues should break down and allow for some “cooler” air to move into parts of these areas!
