PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — It was unseasonable hot weather Wednesday in Oregon.

The National Weather Service issued a heat advisory for high temperatures in the 90s in the Portland-Vancouver metro area and along the Interstate 5 corridor through Eugene. That head advisory doesn’t expire until 9 p.m. Wednesday.

Forecasters expect temperatures in the 80s the rest of the week. That’s even with morning marine clouds pushing through the coastal gaps Thursday and Friday.
