It's Going to Get Hot - Excessive Heat Outlook Issued

The National Weather Service-Portland just issued an Excessive Heat Outlook for the entire region, including Clark county:

Hot temperatures will develop over interior sections of Northwest Oregon and Southwest Washington this weekend. High temperatures on Friday are expected to rise into the lower 90s. Temperatures will climb into the mid and upper 90s over the weekend and likely continue through at least Monday of next week. Some locations might top out near 100 degrees Sunday or Monday. There is the potential for very warm conditions to continue through the middle of next week before significant cooling occurs. Hot temperatures will create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible.
Drink plenty of fluids...stay in an air conditioned room...stay out of the sunshine...and check up on relatives and neighbors.
