Record high temperatures in Washington, Oregon

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE (AP) - Temperatures hit record highs Monday in parts of Washington and Oregon as one of the mildest winters continues in the Northwest.

The National Weather Service reported record highs of 59 at Sea-Tac Airport, 60 at Olympia, 62 at Hoquiam, 62 at Vancouver, 61 in Portland, 62 at Hillsboro, Oregon, and 66 at Salem, Oregon.

Forecasters expect more near-record temperatures on Tuesday because of a summer-like high pressure ridge that creates sunny, dry days.

Forecasters say the ridge may weaken enough Wednesday for some clouds, and a chance of light rain and mountain snow Thursday and Friday. But the high pressure is expected to rebuild over the weekend and into next week.
