(Oregon Coast) – Ocean waves will remain strong and dangerous this morning, tapering off a little Friday afternoon but then returning to crazy conditions again later at night and on Saturday.

Currently, surf advisories on the upper half of the Oregon coast have expired – a little earlier than expected. With surf in and around 18 to 20 feet on Friday and Saturday, conditions will still be gnarly in spots. The whole of the southern Oregon coast remains on such surf warnings until 5 a.m.

The National Weather Service (NWS) was expecting wave height to reach as high as 30 feet at times on Friday morning, but that prediction has changed.

Now the NWS is saying the wild show will continue for a day or so.

“High surf will impact local beaches with waves crashing over jetties and moving logs on beaches,” the NWS said. “Waves will also run up much higher than usual on beaches.”

Combined seas sit at a respectable 18 feet for most of Friday, but rising to just over 20 feet on Saturday. By later in the evening, all that subsides to around 18 feet again, then down to 12 or 13 feet overnight and into Sunday. After that, waves settle to just under ten feet offshore.

Lots of rain and wind are in store for much of the week along the Oregon coast, however Wednesday starts to clear up somewhat. It will be mostly cloudy that day, moving to mostly sunny on Thursday, heralding at least a small run of good weather.
