Forecast calls for triple-digit temperatures in Clark County

It is so hot, but the folks down at the Vancouver Waterfront Park look oh so cool.

The water feature at the park is quite popular these days.

Saturday, people of all ages were dipping their toes into the water, or getting their hair soaked, or playing on the water wall. 

Temperatures were expected to reach the high 90s by the end of the day Saturday in Vancouver, and it is predicted to get even hotter than that Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, with 100-degree forecasts.

In nearby Portland, the high temperature on Friday was 99, and the KPTV FOX 12 website has forecasted 100-degree temperatures from Saturday through Tuesday. The record for consecutive 100-degree days in Portland is five, set in 1941.

In Clark County, lakes, rivers and, of course, water features at parks, will be the places to be if one must be outside.

Stay cool, Clark County. Stay cool.

Nothing like a water feature on a hot day for Ridgefield’s Kahuapaa Kaahanui. The water feature at Vancouver’s Waterfront Park will be very popular as temperatures are expected to hit triple digits. Photo by Paul Valencia
