The National Weather Service (NWS) in Portland has cancelled the excessive heat warning for the areas of the coast and the Willapa Hills. An increase in onshore flow has caused temperatures to fall this morning to levels about 10 degrees cooler than Wednesday morning across most of the coast range. The enhanced marine influence will help hold temperatures down somewhat today, with high temperatures in the area expected to be generally in the 80s and lower 90s. While these temperatures are still above normal they represent a significant drop from the triple digit heat of the past couple days.
