Wind Watch and Heavy Rains for Oregon Coast This Week
(Oregon Coast) – A high wind watch is in effect for the Oregon coast, and the National Weather Service (NWS) is talking some major rain storms for the area as well.
The high wind watch is in effect through Tuesday evening, with the NWS saying sustained winds of 40 mph and peak gusts around 60 are possible on exposed areas. Within the beach towns themselves - such as Seaside, Cannon Beach, Manzanita, Newport, Lincoln City, Yachats, Pacific City or Depoe Bay – the winds won't be as heavy as along beaches and headlands.
The NWS said there may be power disruptions and winds this heavy could create issues for larger vehicles along Highway 101.
A series of increasingly strong Pacific frontal systems are on their way in, likely bringing periods of strong southerly winds and potentially heavy rains to the Oregon coast this week. The higher sections of the coast range will also get hit.
Winds will increase on Monday and continue getting stormier into Tuesday. An even stronger system is expected Tuesday night and Wednesday, bringing in more winds and rain to the area. Flooding could well be a problem.
Some forecast models suggest another storm system will move into the area later in the week, the NWS said, but that is not yet certain.
