Portland is battling with wildfire smoke filling the air after experiencing record heat this week. Saturday afternoon, the air quality suffered as northwest winds brought in a lot of wildfire smoke from both Washington state and Canadian fires.
With continuing northwest winds, air quality in Portland and the Willamette Valley will deteriorate on Sunday.
By Sunday morning, Portland and the surrounding area will have gone from extensive haze to widespread smoke. As the weekend ends, temperatures will continue to rise into the low 90s.

On Sunday, hazy conditions will fall on our shores, particularly around the northern Oregon coast. Local fires will add to the quantity of smoke in the air in central Oregon.
Eastern Oregon will begin to see Hurricane Hilary’s remnants, with the most significant impact beginning Monday morning as sections of Oregon experience excess rain.
For the amount of rain forecast in such a short period, Eastern Oregon has issued a Flood Watch from Sunday through Monday.
Temperatures in and around Portland will begin to cool by the beginning of next week, as will wildfire smoke.
