The scorching heat wave in the US Northwest will last longer | National

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Scorching heat in the Pacific Northwest is expected to last longer than forecasters initially predicted, setting parts of the normally temperate region on course to break records for the longest heat wave.

“We’ve improved the forecast for the latter part of this week,” said David Bishop, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Portland, Oregon. His office is now forecasting temperatures of up to 101 degrees Fahrenheit (38.3 Celsius) for Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
