70+ is a substantially lower bar than 85+ for PDX, though. SEA averages well above that for about 3 months straight.

80+ would be much more comparable for SEA.

The 70+ is a consecutive streak though.  Someone could do the analysis on total 75+ or 80+ days.   No idea where that stands.

PDX mean temp for August: 76.2

VUO mean temp for August: 74.7

1.5 degrees difference across the river.

Pearson has become quite the little cold spot since they tweaked it a few years ago. Used to be a consistent overachiever, but then I remember during the late December 2021 cold snap it ran remarkably (inaccurately) cold. Making up for lost time.

You consider 95 to be miserable heat?

I do.

Last week North Bend had 91, 96, 98, 98, 93 over a 5-day span.   It was not pleasant.

Oh gotcha...yeah, kind of a different thing since it's consecutive and certainly impressive, but doesn't reflect actual summer warmth like the 85+ thing for PDX.

imo 95 isn't that bad but once it reaches 100 it really limits one's ability to do things outside.

85+ is my limit honestly hate when it gets above 75° my preference temperature range is 65-75° under 65° I complain how cool-cold it is outside and above 75° I complain it's to warm-hot. 70° is spot on perfect I can deal with that daily.

Thanks!

Trying to figure how to get a graph based on a parameter like total days at 75+ at SEA.   I can get consecutive lists but can't replicate what @RentonHill created for PDX for total days at 85+.

90 burgers currently at SLE and PDX. Looks like it's 82 at Silver Falls with light NW winds, so at least any fire should be moving away from my house at the moment.

I ran total days above 75 degrees at SEA... 1967 and 2015 are on top of the list with 84 days.

So far 2023 is at 70 days but that assumes its updated daily and I am including today.    That is good enough for 12th of the list and its only August 25th.   Going to close the gap over the next few days and probably again later next week.  

SEA only needs 15 more days above 75 degrees for the rest of the year to beat the record.

SEA needs 12 more days at 80+ to dethrone 2015 (51).    That might be a little tougher to do.  

2023 is currently 12th on that list as well.    One interesting year in the top 10 is 1961 with 45 days at 80+.   8 of the top 12 are from the last decade.    The other years include 1958, 1961, 1967, and 1987.    2023 will pass up 1987 and 2013 this weekend and move into the top 10.
