An extraordinary heat wave is taking shape this weekend, potentially unlike any other the Northwest US has experienced. Dozens of heat records are forecast to fall in Oregon, Washington and Idaho — all in the first week of summer.

As temperatures surge into the triple digits, Seattle could feel more like Las Vegas, while Portland could experience Phoenix-level warmth in an area where having air conditioning isn't always the norm. Dozens of heat records -- including some all-time records set decades ago -- are forecast to fall in Oregon, Washington and Idaho, all in the first week of summer."Usually, the hottest time of the year [in Washington] lags a month after the solstice," Rocco Pelatti, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Spokane, told CNN Weather."July is usually the hottest month; sometimes, it bleeds into August. To have June start out like it has is very concerning."The heat will rise toward uncharted territory in Seattle and Portland. By late weekend, high temperatures could be 25 to 30 degrees above what's normal for this time of year. Seattle's average high in late June is 72 degrees, while Portland typically enjoys 75-degree afternoons this time of year. Forecast models suggest high temperatures could be near or above 100 degrees for the two cities from Saturday through Monday.

It's forecast to hit 100 three days this weekend alone. The mercury in Seattle rarely climbs above 90 degrees. As a result, the hottest June temperature ever observed at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport -- 96 degrees in 2017 -- will also be in jeopardy this weekend. In a heat dome, high pressure acts as a lid on the atmosphere and as hot air tries to escape, the lid forces it back down, warming even more as it sinks.Much like the Southwest heat wave last week, a massive ridge of high pressure -- colloquially referred to as a heat dome -- will be responsible for the torrid heat. But unlike the Southwest, millions of people in the Northwest do not have air conditioning in their homes."In this area, not many people have A/C, so we don't have the relief that we can get in other places that get this hot," said Mary Butwin, a meteorologist for NWS Seattle.Least air-conditioned city in the USThe heat could be lethal in Seattle and Portland, which rank first and third respectively for major US cities with the fewest air-conditioned households. A US Census Bureau study in 2015 found that only 33% of Seattle-area homes were air conditioned. Since most homes in western WA don't have central AC, here are a few tips on how to keep your home cool this coming weekend. #wawx

— NWS Seattle (@NWSSeattle) June 23, 2021 The lack of A/C in Seattle -- a city known for its tepid summers -- has not historically been a problem. Between 1971 and 2000, the city averaged only three 90-degree days each summer. However, from 2015-2018, the average number of 90-degree days increased to 10 each summer. Not surprisingly, the US Census Bureau updated its findings in 2019, revealing that A/C adoption in Seattle had risen to 44%, an 11% increase in A/C units installed since just 2015.'use strict';CNN.Videx=CNN.Videx || {};{};CNN.INJECTOR.executeFeature('video').then(function () {CNN.VideoPlayer.handleUnmutePlayer=function handleUnmutePlayer(containerId, dataObj) {'use strict';var playerInstance,playerPropertyObj,rememberTime,unmuteCTA,unmuteIdSelector='unmute_' + containerId,isPlayerMute;dataObj=dataObj || {};if (CNN.VideoPlayer.getLibraryName(containerId)==='fave') {playerInstance=FAVE.player.getInstance(containerId) || null;} else {playerInstance=containerId && window.cnnVideoManager.getPlayerByContainer(containerId).videoInstance.cvp || null;}isPlayerMute=(typeof dataObj.muted==='boolean') ? dataObj.muted : false;if (CNN.VideoPlayer.playerProperties && CNN.VideoPlayer.playerProperties[containerId]) {playerPropertyObj=CNN.VideoPlayer.playerProperties[containerId];}if (playerPropertyObj.mute && playerPropertyObj.contentPlayed) {if (isPlayerMute===false) {unmuteCTA=jQuery(document.getElementById(unmuteIdSelector));playerInstance.unmute();if (unmuteCTA.length > 0) {unmuteCTA.removeClass('video__unmute--active').addClass('video__unmute--inactive');'click');rememberTime=0;if (rememberTime 0) {$vidEndSlate.find('.l-container').html('');$vidEndSlate.removeClass('video__end-slate--inactive').addClass('video__end-slate--active');}};CNN.autoPlayVideoExist=(CNN.autoPlayVideoExist===true) ? true : false;var configObj={thumb: 'none',video: 'us/2016/07/21/heat-wave-temperature-record-high-danger-jennifer-gray-orig.cnn',width: '100%',height: '100%',section: 'international',profile: 'expansion',network: 'cnn',markupId: 'body-text_21',theoplayer: {allowNativeFullscreen: true},adsection: 'const-article-inpage',frameWidth: '100%',frameHeight: '100%',posterImageOverride: {"mini":{"width":220,"type":"jpg","uri":"//","height":124},"xsmall":{"width":307,"type":"jpg","uri":"//","height":173},"small":{"width":460,"type":"jpg","uri":"//","height":259},"medium":{"width":780,"type":"jpg","uri":"//","height":438},"large":{"width":1100,"type":"jpg","uri":"//","height":619},"full16x9":{"width":1600,"type":"jpg","uri":"//","height":900},"mini1x1":{"width":120,"type":"jpg","uri":"//","height":120}}},autoStartVideo=false,isVideoReplayClicked=false,callbackObj,containerEl,currentVideoCollection=[],currentVideoCollectionId='',isLivePlayer=false,mediaMetadataCallbacks,mobilePinnedView=null,moveToNextTimeout,mutePlayerEnabled=false,nextVideoId='',nextVideoUrl='',turnOnFlashMessaging=false,videoPinner,videoEndSlateImpl;if (CNN.autoPlayVideoExist===false) {autoStartVideo=false;autoStartVideo=typeof CNN.isLoggedInVideoCheck==='function' ?
