We should also make a thread on what the longest stretches of 90 degree days (consecutive) are in each city. Maybe also include east side cities, Pendleton/Bend/Klamath Falls/Spokane/Yakima.

In 2021 I had a stretch of 22 days in a row over 90 at KLMT from 6/24 to 7/15. That wasn't a record for them, but that was personally the longest I have ever experienced. I compare longest stretches to other years I lived there and can't believe how only two of those years barely reach 10. Though a few other waves were close calls (count being stopped by only 1 or 2 80's). I think 2017 would have had longer than 8 days in a row if not for the favorable environment for wet thunderstorms middle of that summer. It's not a coincidence IMO that 2021 sucked for convection and also had the most miserable heat out of the bunch. 

2021: 22
2020: 8
2019: 3
2018: 9
2017: 8
2016: 10
2015: 6
2014: 10
2013: 6
2012: 7
2011: 2

July 2014 would be 19 days in a row if not for a single day only reaching 81 on 7/11.

Here's the data for a bunch of climate sites, if this belongs in another thread I can move it there:

Portland: 10 days from July 25th to August 3rd, 2009

Salem: 13 days from July 29th to August 10th, 2017

Eugene: 12 days from both July 12th to July 23rd, 1938 and July 24th to August 4th, 2021

Medford: 34 days from both June 17th to July 20th, 2021 and July 8th to August 10th, 1961

Klamath Falls: 34 days from June 28th to July 31st, 1906

The Dalles: 26 days from August 7th to September 1st, 1923

Bend: 19 days from July 20th to August 7th, 1927

Pendleton: 31 days from both June 30th to July 30th, 1906 and July 14th to August 13th, 1971.

Redmond: 28 days from June 18th to July 15th, 2021

Baker City: 21 days from July 22nd to August 11th, 1978

La Grande: 32 days from July 15th to August 15th, 1971

Ontario: 74 days from June 28th to September 9th, 1967

This is all Oregon, I might do Washington in a bit. Here's the source I used: http://mesonet.agron.iastate.edu/plotting/auto/?_wait=no&q=216&network=ORCLIMATE&station=ORTONO&var=high&dir=above&threshold=90&_r=t&dpi=100&_fmt=png

Thanks for the link, and its interesting how there's so many differing summers that hold these records. If I recall Spokane had the highest number of days in a year over 90 last year, which is a little different than "stretches". I never found out what KLMT's highest is (53 last year!).

Crazy that none of the 2013-2020 years even make it on this graphic. ;)

The record for Klamath Falls is apparently 58 days in 1902, but that was before the airport, 1905 is second and 2021 is third.

I figured last summer had to be at least close to the top. 

Funny that I had nothing between 38 (2017) and 53 days. I bet a lot of the early 1900's go between these two figures.

Here's data for # of 90 degree days per year at Klamath Falls, I downloaded it as an Excel file to view easier:

I guess 1992/1996 are the only 2 years that had 40-49.. You can see 1993 at that sharp drop. lol

Surprised 1993 had more than 2011 tho.

Top 10 Years by # of 90° Days in Portland

There's a post on Medford NWS (facebook page) on 2018 being the worst smoke year by far. So that year found a way to be the worst at something throughout the northwest outside of Portland.

Mark Nelsen posted a graphic about air quality in Portland in recent years, 2015, 2017, 2018 and 2020 stand out!
