I have, and decided to crunch some numbers. We are nearing the halfway point of August and the weekends have been unusually hot. Lets look at the supporting evidence.
Below are the high temperatures for the first two weekends in August at PDX:
August 4th: High: 102
Sunday August 5th: High 94
Saturday August 11th: High 87 degrees
Sunday August 12th: High 94 degrees
Contrast the weekend days to weekdays (Monday – Friday): The average high for these weekdays are 81 degrees – or 13.3 degrees cooler.
