High Wind Watch on Oregon Coast Gives Way to Sunny, Warm

(Oregon Coast) – A high wind watch for the Oregon coast has been issued by the National Weather Service (NWS) until Friday afternoon, and it's expected to change into a high wind warning. Gusts of up to 60 mph are what's in store for exposed beaches and headlands. (Photo above: Manzanita basking in the sun).

Wait another 24 hours, however, and you're looking at a run of warm, even balmy weather.

The high wind watch will expire at 4 p.m. Until then, the NWS said coastal communities will be looking at sustained winds in the 30's at times, and gusts up to 50 mph. A cold front will pass through the area in the late afternoon, signaling an abrupt change from gnarly to nice.

All this gives way to a run of exceptional weather, with some forecasters predicting temps around 60 degrees and plenty of sun all the way to Thursday and beyond. The NWS is a bit more conservative, but currently showing forecasts of close to 60 for the coast and mostly to partly sunny skies late into the week.

The good stuff starts on Sunday with the NWS looking at partly sunny and 59. Monday appears to be sunny and perhaps cloudless, as is Tuesday. Wednesday is mostly clear, according to the NWS, and Thursday, the agency says, will be in for some rain – but possibly sun breaks.

This kind of run of good weather happens most every February, and has been nicknamed the “mini spring” by some coastal residents and regulars. The beaches are often much warmer than the town just tens of feet away, if there are little to no winds. A combination of the ocean and the sands reflecting back the sun will make the area near the tide line downright balmy, causing it to feel some ten degrees warmer.

Believe it or not, you will need sunscreen on the beaches this coming week. Oregon Coast Hotels for this - Where to eat - Map and Virtual Tour - More Oregon Coast Weather
