Plants are surprisingly resilient, and I think it would take something like 130+, maybe higher, to cause outright heat death.  I wonder what sort of temps trees are exposed to in fires that they survive.  I don't expect to see much immediate mortality though it will of course contribute to longer term drought stress.

I think Jesse is referring to the extended nature of this heat wave (90+), not just the peak.

Also, the trees are already stressed from a decade of warmer than normal summers. They're simply being abandoned from their original climate as we warm, so an event like this could "do it in" for a lot of them.

I can’t believe how hot PDX is right now.

Horrible.

There should be "angry sun" emojis for posts like these..

Yeah, appears SEA was just far enough west to avoid the stronger offshore component. Decent jump as you head over to RNT just a few miles east.

Yeah.  Even in this area I "only" hit 108 and places just east of hear easily made 110.  The east wind only lasted for a few hours here.

I think much of this is way overstated.

Up until the last week or so SEA was running below normal for the running average Feb 1 to present.  No reason to think we're not going to have some cool weather coming up.

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.

You told me that in 2016 too. Right in the middle of that late June heatwave, in fact.

Looks like Salem and Scappoose share the honor of highest hourly temp so far (from a major, reliable station) with 116.

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.

Yeah... you told me the second half of June and the first half of July was going to be chilly.   😀

And do you mean that massive heat wave in late June 2016 here that peaked at a blistering 88 degrees for one day?

Good call on the Baker Lake trip, just be careful with the cold water, already seeing too many people getting taken out by that.  Also, I saw a post about a cougar "behaving erratically" up in that area a couple of months ago....I'm guessing its rabid.  I never heard if they found it/euthanized it.

Ended up being a good trip! I heard about that cougar a few weeks ago, was very glad to have not seen any cats or bears on this outing. There were a surprising amount of other crazy people camping out there though! It took us a while to find a spot to set up

115 is.... remarkably hot. Like so hot that the only major cities that really eclipse us in that regard are Phoenix and Vegas.

I did not realize how incredible that June 2016 heat wave was... SEA had one day of 80 and one day of 85 then dropped to 76 and then 72.     How did we ever survive?

It was much warmer than that in most places.

Point is, the storyline was basically the same as right now.

I don’t think there’s any reasoning with him and a couple others who are somehow disappointed that we didn’t see the widespread 120 readings everywhere lol. 106 here currently and plenty of much hotter places today that’s hot enough!

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.
