Holiday, Weekend Weather Good for NW Oregon
|Oceanside will likely look a lot like this on Sunday and the day
(Portland, Oregon) - For those in Portland, Salem, Eugene
and the Oregon coast, this weekend and parts of the pre-holiday week look
sunny and bright – quite literally.
The coast is a major tradition for many on Thanksgiving,
and of course, travel up and down the I-5 corridor will be plentiful for
the holiday as well. Whatever the scenario for your holiday, driving conditions
will be fantastic, while this weekend and early in the weekend contain
some stunning days on the coast and inland.
The weekend promises to be quite lovely on the Oregon coast.
Saturday, highs near 48 and only scattered showers are predicted by the
National Weather Service (NWS). Winds will be extremely light, around
6 mph, and the evening may bring some fog later on. Chances for showers
will increase, however. Still, those light winds will make it feel quite
warm when the sun pokes its head out.

Like the inland area, Monday will bring some rain. The
coast is likely to be around 52 and mostly cloudy, yet light winds will
keep that warm feeling throughout the day and night. Evening lows will
be around 40.
Tuesday brings a chance of rain, mostly cloudy conditions
and temps again about 52. The evening will be about the same but with
lows around 41.
52 degrees is again the magic number for Wednesday, according
to the NWS. But look for mostly sunny conditions, filling that day full
of promise for holiday travel and fun on the beach – should you
be able to weasel out of work early.
On Thursday - Thanksgiving - rain will likely make its
appearance on the coast, although nothing major. Highs will be near 50
and lows around 40, leaving fantastic conditions for travel to and from
For the Portland area and inland northwest Oregon, Saturday

cloudy during the day and a high near 53. As the evening rolls on, the
chance of showers remains, as do the clouds.
On Wednesday, as many will be beginning their Thanksgiving
travels from the northwest Oregon area, it’s expected to be mostly
sunny and highs near 52. Lows will be around 39 that night and it will
be partly cloudy, which won’t cause any traffic hazards at all,
unless you’re roaming in the higher elevations where freezing temps
