The roads during the extreme heatwave in the Pacific Northwest are expanding, cracking, and breaking apart.

On Sunday, Portland, Oregon, reached 112* breaking the all-time temperature record of 108* ---- which was set just a day earlier.

The temperature hit an all-time record high of 104* in Seattle. The city also had back-to-back triple-digit days for the first time ever.

The hottest temperatures of this historic heatwave are expected across the Pacific Northwest today (Monday), reaching 30+ above normal highs while the low temperatures will only get to the mid-70s this week.

The National Weather Service has issued Excessive Heat Warnings saying that temperatures could reach 110*-120* across Washington, Oregon, and portions of Idaho until Thursday evening.
