(Oregon Coast) – UPDATE: Central Oregon coast is under a high surf warning; north coast under a high surf advisory, in effect 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday. Wave height 25 feet in Lincoln County; around 23 feet north of there.

Rain and more rain is on its way to Portland and the Oregon coast, as well as snow in the Gorge. But the beaches will see some massive wave action on Thursday, with the National Weather Service (NWS) putting out some advisories yesterday that have just turned into warnings today.

“An area of low pressure off the Oregon coast will produce gale force winds over the water Thursday,” the NWS said. “Seas will increase from 10 to 15 feet on Wednesday to peak at 20 to 25 feet Thursday and Thursday night. Seas will diminish slowly Friday.”

Seas calm down to a still-vigorous 18 feet on Friday, lowering just a little to 15 feet over the weekend. Some good wave action should be caught at the usual rocky spots like Depoe Bay, Yachats, Oceanside or viewpoints near the jetties.

Stay off actual jetties at all times, however, no matter the weather.

High winds are expected on the coast on Thursday as well, with gusts around 47 mph. It’s storm watching time again. In fact, winds will start picking up on Wednesday night, with gusts as high as around 40 mph.

Friday and Saturday see more clouds and rain – which is a bit of a shift in forecast from earlier, when the NWS said some breaks in the clouds were possible on Saturday night. This will put a major dampener on the total lunar eclipse for not just the Oregon coast but the Portland area on Sunday night.

The moon will be completely covered in darkness for about an hour, with the outer edges starting to get darkened around 7:30 p.m. See Full Lunar Eclipse To Make Moon Orange for Portland, Oregon Coast, Inland

The NWS said NOAA satellites are showing the entire state is looking at a “rather chaotic weather pattern.” Snow advisories are being issued for the Columbia Gorge on Thursday but no such icy weather in Portland or the valley.
