  1. That would actually make quite a bit of sense. After all, it was a Pacific cyclone in the first place that rat33 the jet stream hard enough to cause this whole thing. The connection seems obvious now in hindsight, I'm surprised I haven't heard much mention of this before.
  2. I will be tickled pink if PDX can pull off another 100 tomorrow. I have been enjoying this whole event so much, I was honestly a little bummed when the sea breeze got here and cooled things down tonight. Give PDX one more 100 degree day and give both Oregon and Washington a 120 degree all time record at Hermiston and Kennewick tomorrow, and then I'll be satisfied and will shut up. At least until the next record heat wave, which hopefully will be sooner rather than later!
  3. 118 near Quillayute probably takes the cake for most impressive reading of this event imo. Assuming this is confirmed, for at least a day, Quillayute will be one of the holders of the Washington all time state record. Lmao
  4. Sorry, apparently I am the only person here who likes anomalous weather. Although if you ask Phil or Jesse, apparently there's no such thing as anomalous weather, and it's actually *easier* for us to hit 115 than it is for us to *not* hit 115.
  5. Looks like TTD might be saying "wait, not so fast!" and just popped up to 117. We'll see if this holds up for the hourly in a few minutes.
  6. PDX back down to 113 now. Looks like the top is in, sadly. Disappointed we couldn't do better than 115, but I'm hopeful that we can take another crack at breaking 120 soon. Hopefully this won't be the last pattern like this this summer.
  7. Woohoo!!! Tigard just pulled off a 120 as well! https://www.wrh.noaa.gov/mesowest/timeseries.php?sid=F8005&num=72&banner=gmap&raw=0&w=325
  8. Surprised no one has mentioned that Canby squeaked up to 121 earlier. https://www.wrh.noaa.gov/mesowest/timeseries.php?sid=C5416&num=72&banner=gmap&raw=0&w=325
  9. Multiple stations now reporting 121 degrees around Aumsville, just SE of Salem. Wow.
  10. I think we should start punishing people with jail time for statements like "Seattle has mild summers, there's no need for air conditioning here! You'd only turn it on a couple days a year at most."
  11. What an absolutely brain dead level of overconfidence based on literally nothing other than "nuh uh, no it won't!!!" This progression has been made abundantly clear by both the GFS and the Euro for over a week now. It's been plainly obvious to anyone watching this through an objective lens. Unless you have a very good reason not to, it's always going to be a losing proposition to bet against the models when they have been so consistent about something.
  12. Portland is the hottest city on Earth right now. Now that's something I never thought I would see.
  13. Up to 109 in my backyard now. Hoping I can break 110 before noon!
