Windy Fall Storm for Portland, Inland Oregon, Coast
(Oregon Coast) – The National Weather Service (NWS) said an early fall storm is about to hit much of Oregon, with considerable rain already drenching the Oregon coast today. Winds on the beaches will pick up as well as inland, including the Portland area.
It's the first organized system of the season, the NWS said, arriving overnight and sticking around through the early part of Wednesday. Look for wind gusts up to 50 mph on the coast along with an inch or two of rain. Winds in Portland will be heavy for that area.
Showers and winds will decrease by Wednesday night, but predictions are pointing to at least partially rainy conditions sticking around through much of the weekend on both the coast and inland Oregon.
Close to two inches of rain already pummeled the Oregon coast Tuesday.
The NWS said the main weather impact will be widespread moderate to heavy rain that will move from the coast tonight and into the Cascades by Wednesday evening.
“Rainfall totals by the end of the day Wednesday are expected to be between a half inch to one and a half inches, with up to two inches in the mountains,” the NWS said. “This may result in some ponding of water in low lying areas.”
The NWS said motorists are urged to use caution because wet conditions will be exacerbated by residual oil and grease having been on the roads for months of dry weather. Things will be slippery.
Weekend weather for the Oregon coast will be on and off with rain, according to NWS forecasts. Partly sunny conditions are predicted for Friday through Sunday.
