Coast, Inland Oregon and Washington in Frost Advisory Tonight
(Manzanita, Oregon) – All those lovely, clear skies on the coast during the day mean paying a price somehow, it seems. Those open skies allow temperatures to plummet dramatically at night at times, and this weekend is one of them. (Above: near Depoe Bay on a clear, starry, and moonlit night.)
Consequently, the National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a frost advisory for the Oregon coast, as well as other parts of the northwest United States.
“Mainly clear skies and light winds will allow temperatures to dip into the lower to mid 30’s tonight and Sunday morning, for low lying locations in southwest Washington and northwest Oregon,” the NWS said. “These temperatures will produce areas of frost in some of the outlying valleys.”
The frost advisory is in effect from 1 a.m. to 9 a.m. Sunday morning. (Pictured above: Astoria.)
The NWS said people in the frost advisory areas are advised to cover or harvest some vegetation. “A frost advisory means that frost is possible,” the NWS said. “Sensitive outdoor plants may be killed if left uncovered.”
The advisory extends from the Oregon coast to the coast range, as well as parts of Oregon and Washington. The NWS said these conditions are likely in coastal towns such as Astoria, Cannon Beach, Seaside, Tillamook, Oceanside, Manzanita and as far down as Pacific City. It appears to be limited to the northern part of Oregon and extreme southern parts of Washington, and does not include the central coast or the south coast, as well as towns like Corvallis or Eugene.It does, however, extend to towns like Portland, Gresham, Kelso, Vancouver, Cape Disappointment, Long Beach, St. Helens, Vernonia, Salem and McMinnville - although it is not expected in densely populated city areas, but the rural areas nearby.
