Heat wave Lincoln City

National Weather Service Portland says the Pacific Northwest is in for a historic heat wave this weekend, calling for unseasonably high record temperatures.

Excessive Heat Watches are in effect for all of Washington State, much of Oregon and northern California.

According to NWS, high temperatures will be 10-20 degrees above normal over the next couple of days in the Pacific Northwest, with record highs over the weekend likely. The unseasonably hot weather could move needles past 100 degrees in some places, such as the Coast Range of Northwest Oregon, Central Coast Range of Western Oregon, Northern Oregon Cascade Foothills, Northern Oregon Cascades, Cascade Foothills in Lane County and the Cascades in Lane County.

High temperatures for Lincoln City are projected to be 77 degrees on Saturday and 75 degrees on Sunday.

Meteorologist say the reason for the potential record highs is due to an increasingly amplified mid to upper level pattern across the northeast Pacific that will be leading to strong high pressure over the Pacific Northwest bringing the stretch of hot weather.
