    At any rate there has been nothing even close to historically warm about this month so far and nothing in sight.  The top 5 summer stuff is being overblown based on the guidance we currently have.  From a high temp perspective this month has been pretty typical so far.  The mins have been a bit high, but that will change too.

    My overnight low was 51° last night here in McMinnville.

    Can't speak for anyone getting defensive but it seems like this is on you for believing some wacky GFS numbers that were eventually moderated within about 4-5 days of the event. No reputable sources were ever touting widespread highs in the 120s-- the fact that we're even talking about isolated reports nearing that west of the Cascades is a tribute to how intense this event is.

    "can't speak for anyone getting defensive"......proceeds to defend.

    Some of you guys crack me up!

    There was a poster on here yesterday that I believe is from McMinnville and said that he wasn't impressed with the heat and that it was overhyped. I wonder how he feel now? 114 is super impressive no matter  how you slice it. 

    I feel just fine. Our all-time record high was 110° that was reached several times in history. We are at 113° right now. That's three degrees higher. The hype machine was touting records to be beat by 10-12 degrees. Three degrees is a whole lot different than 10-12 degrees when it comes to records and that was the point I was making. Not sure why everyone is so defensive about me not believing the hype. It's pretty weird.

    I really hope you make it through tomorrow okay with all of your expectations built up from the internets. Sorry you follow people who don't know what they're talking about, this is a great time to reevaluate where you get your weather information from for PNW events. :) Because most of the people on this board were right on top of this thing early and the forecasts have played out about as good as any recent forecast for a record-breaking extreme weather event. Sure a small tweak here and a little adjustment there, but that's called weather forecasting. Not sure if you follow a 12 year old on Twitter that said Portland was going to hit 130 or something, but that's on you. These models nailed it and the GFS had this thing pegged over a week ago.

    Odd and frankly a little creepy flex dude but if it makes you feel better about yourself I'll allow it. Let's just call it the heat shall we. Try to cool down and get some rest. This will be over soon.

    I think you may be buying into whatever hype the internet is going at rather than judging from what the models are showing for yourself. 

    This thing has been very much as advertised on the models, particularly the GFS, while the Euro struggled. In fact, for SEA yesterday it was a lot warmer than modeled from the GFS and today was on point. Tomorrow will most likely have you cry Uncle. 

    Won't be crying uncle regardless of what happens.

    Models oversold this too.

    I saw plenty of runs that spit out temps that never materialized.

    I'm impressed by the event but it's not what I expected....not nearly as impressed as I thought I was going to be.
