Sunny Days Coming for Spring Break Along Washington, Oregon Coast

(Yachats, Oregon) – Spring break on the Oregon and Washington coastlines has a new bounce in its step: it’s going to get really sunny and pleasant this week. Highs will still be chilly in most areas, in the lower 50s at most, but the very edges of the southern Oregon coast will get near 63.

The National Weather Service (NWS) said things will shift across the Pacific Northwest over the weekend, but it will be short-lived.

“This will result in a period of drier and warmer weather on Friday and Saturday, with the warmest conditions expected on Saturday as the ridge axis moves over the area,” the NWS said. The latest iteration of the NBM [National Blend of Models] suggests temperatures will approach 60 degrees over the interior valleys Friday afternoon, with highs at least in the low to mid 60s Saturday afternoon.”

Washington Coast: Around Westport and other areas of the central Washington coast things get sunny on Thursday with a high near 49. It will be chilly, with some slightly heavy winds however, up to 22 mph and some higher gusts possible.

Friday and Saturday see sunny skies but highs only around 50.

On Sunday, temps lower a bit to just under 50 and a slight chance of rain. On Monday and Tuesday it’s the typical flighty weather of spring, with sunny but chances of rain as well.

It’s a similar forecast for the northern Washington coast but with slightly cooler temps.

S. Washington Coast and North Oregon Coast: On the northern Oregon coast and south Washington coast (Long Beach down through Florence), Thursday brings showers before 11 a.m., mostly cloudy skies and a high of around 45. Winds will be rather brisk but more in the teens.

On Friday and Saturday, the sun comes out with highs around 50.

Sunday gets cloudy again with some rain, but on Monday and Tuesday it’s a mix of sun and rain with highs around 50.

South Oregon Coast: On the southern Oregon coast (Reedsport through Bandon), it’s also a similar forecast to the northern half and Washington coast. However, temps are a bit higher, especially when you get down to Brookings, where the forecasts at times are 10 degrees above the rest of the Pacific Northwest coastline.

Thursday will see rain and highs around 50.

Saturday and Sunday take you into sunny and clear territory with highs around 54. Monday and Tuesday stay sunny with highs a little bit lower.

However, once you get down below Gold Beach and into the Brookings area, high temps during those sunny weekend days will be a balmy 63 degrees at times.

For ocean action over spring break, there won’t be anything remarkable, according to the NWS. Most areas of the Pacific Northwest beaches will have offshore seas of 6 to 12 feet through much of the week, lowering back down below 10 feet by the weekend.

This will be a good time to go agate hunting and looking for other beach treasures, however, from La Push all the way down to Gold Beach. Winter storms have left sizable erosion until about a week or two ago, and agate beds should be aplenty because of it. Lots of odd debris is still being found (think about taking a cleanup bag with you and helping out), and most areas are still showing remarkable dune degradation and abrupt cut-offs, which you don’t see to this degree that often.
