In Oregon, the forecast calls for a stormy weekend with heavy rain, a stark contrast to the scorching heat that’s expected to follow. USER:

According to the National Weather Service, Oregon is expected to experience significant weather fluctuations over the next week, with heavy rain followed by a major heatwave. The weather pattern is being driven by an “atmospheric river” of moisture from the Pacific Ocean, which is unusual for early June. This weather system is expected to bring up to 4 inches of rain in some areas, which is nearly a month’s worth of rainfall in a short period. The rain will be followed by a rapid drying and warming trend, with temperatures potentially reaching 90 degrees or even 100 degrees in some parts of the state.
