One Last Storm Punch for Oregon Coast, Weather Alerts for Valley, Cascades
(Oregon Coast) – One last storm punch is starting to hit the Oregon coast now, and it also means gusty winds for inland towns like Portland, Eugene and Salem, along with a winter weather advisory for the Cascade mountains.
The National Weather Service office in Portland said a fairly strong frontal system will be bringing in rain and wind to the Oregon coast, the mountains and parts of the Willamette Valley, starting Tuesday night and into Wednesday.
“Southerly winds will increase along the Oregon coast late tonight, resulting in 45 mph to 55 mph gusts,” the NWS said. “A few locations may have brief periods of 60 mph winds.”
The NWS said the Willamette Valley, south of McMinnville, will likely see 30 to 40 mph winds by Wednesday morning.
Seas are building to some dramatic heights, which should mean excellent storm wave watching on the coast Wednesday. They are expected to reach 16 to 18 feet late Tuesday. Later on Wednesday or Thursday, this could likely mean good conditions for beachcombing or agate hunting, if the waves have done any amount of erosion.
The NWS has created a winter weather advisory from 5 p.m. Wednesday to 11 a.m. on Thursday for the norther Oregon Cascades. Snow levels are expected to lower to 2,500 feet near midnight on Wednesday and then to 1500 on Thursday. Snowfall could be three to five inches between 2,000 and 3,000 feet.
