Here comes the heat

PENDLETON-- The National Weather Service has issued a special weather statement with heat arriving this weekend and staying through much of the week to come.

Expect daytime highs to rise into the 100's in many locations this weekend, with similar temps lasting through Thursday.

A jet stream ridge is building, which will usher in unseasonably warm air from the south and keep the winds calm.

Experts advise you drink plenty of fluids and avoid exertion in the middle of the day and during the afternoon. Overnight lows will offer little relief.
