One would think that the heat wave would have some affect on farm animals amd livestock that aren't use to heat like this...?  Providing shade and water during this time seems essential...

I think SEA bottomed out at 70.  Won't know for sure until 11 a.m.

Would that be the warmest low ever there?   Not that it matters since it will be even warmer the next 2 nights.

Wondering how my chickens will hold up. Anyone here have chickens? 

My GF does. I know a lot about them. 

I know they've experience mid 90s for sure before. I'm going to dump a bunch of ice in their water bin later this morning. Long as they stay in the shade they should be fine. These ones like laying in little depressions in the ground they make and take dust baths in.

Icon seems about the same in temps, but it has only the narrowest of slivers of heat left thru the Portland area Monday. Looks like an inverted  snow and freezing rain line from during our February event.

ICON was actually significantly warmer than its last run but yeah, pretty defined gradient where the Gorge will superheat things.

Sure I guess anything is technically possible but my point is that as our climate warms it’s pretty obvious we are getting these hotter summers at the expense of our cold winters. You (and several other posters here) seem to have this idea that we can have our cake and eat it too with regard to scoring historic cold in the winter while our summers become increasingly crazy, but the last 3-4 decades + has proven quite the opposite.

Again, there will always be outlier events but I am talking about the general, unmistakable trend.

To be fair, the trend has been/will be bumpy, and even if we assume a higher climate sensitivity (which is less likely anyway) there are a multitude of ways for said trend(s) to reverse for decades at a time. At the regional level that can extend to centuries under the right conditions.

Even the most rapid episodes of global warming across the Pleistocene (such as the glacial terminations) underwent frequent multidecadal reversals.

The 06Z ECMWF and now the 12Z GFS trended slower with the cool down and warmer for Tuesday.   That is pretty depressing.

I respect your opinion. Volcanism from the early 80s into the early 90s may have contributed to the cooler climate of that time period. We definitely don't get as cold these days. If you like cool and showery during the summer, so be it. You're welcome to your weather preference. I'm not a fan of this current heatwave, so I'm sure we can agree on that.

It’s more about the massive amount of subsidence at the moment and the lack of mixing. 

My preferences can beat up your preferences’ dad.

The good news is we do this all over again next weekend.

Not nearly as extreme though... just typical hot.   

The 12Z GFS is flatter with the ridge for next weekend compared to the 00Z run... but warmer than the 06Z run.

The 850mb map in the 12Z GFS is hideous for next weekend... but luckily there is no offshore flow so that helps.
