to be sure 107 or 108 in Portland or anywhere else is HOT but it worthwhile knowing that Portland generally gets 100 or above at least a couple of days a year (it got to 101 in either late June or earliest July this year already) so this is not some kind of thermal disaster never ever seen before. BTW, Medford in southern Oregon is scheduled to be 112 tomorrow!!!
it's well to remember that Portland is further inland than Hayward so potential extreme highs are probably more of a possibility. moreover since Portland is a good sized city with lots of buildings and concrete the urban heat island effect is likely also in play.
FWIW, it's hotter than normal here on the coast today with forecast highs of around 85 here and hotter still just a very few miles inland..
