We've been forecasting this for days -- and here it is!

RECORD BREAKING temperatures along the Oregon Coast. The official temperature out of the North Bend airport today was 93 degrees (keep in mind the "norm" is 67), smashing the old record of 86 in 1939.  

When the weather gets a bit crazy -- you e-mail me. I can't tell you enough how much I enjoy hearing from ALL of you. So, with this intense heat along the coast, here's just a sampling of your observations: 

  • How about 91 in Coos Bay at about 2pm, 100 at 4.  I was parked on 101 going south and was in the shade.  my car registered 100 when I staarted out.  it was down to 95 to 93 by thetime I got home at 5.   it is way toooooooooooooooo hot for us, lucky there is a little bit of humidity.  hope it holds....The temp display in my car read 103 degrees at 5 pm (in Sumner).  (Temp measured by antenna on outside of vehicle.)

  • I live in the neighborhood just to the west of North Bend airport and it was 100 degrees on my back porch thermometer. It is in the shade.
     
  • 109-degrees at 4 pm on our balcony (across from Horsfall Beach/North Bend). 
     
No doubt, it's been a HOT end to summer along the coast and here in the valley. Let me know what's happening in your neighborhood by e-mailing me at swayne@kval.com

Patch, our cat is waiting for breakfast as he enjoys the Sun in Lowell while the Valley and Eugene has a blanket of fog. A 13 mile drive to Lowell east of I-5 and you can escape the fog that Eugene residents put up with. It is worth the short commute to live out of the fog for most of the winter.

A short 13 mile drive east to Lowell and you can escape the Valley fog. 95% of the time that Eugene is socked in with fog there is blues skies in Lowell.
