NW Beaches Get Sun Midweek as Inland Near 70 | Oregon, Washington Coast

(Portland, Oregon) – If you like lots of sun with your beach trip, this week will scratch that itch for those thinking about the Washington coast or Oregon coast. As March leaves the building, April brings in plenty of sunny days for part of the week. Interestingly enough, there’s more sun up on the northern Washington coast and the southern Oregon coast, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

Meanwhile, some inland areas like Portland will get close to 70 degrees in the mid week.

Tonight, however, on the upper Washington coast, there’s still a high wind advisory in effect until midnight on Sunday. Gusts up to 50 are expected.

Much of the Oregon coast experienced that already earlier on Sunday, but cloud breaks are appearing in the afternoon since the storm front has left the beaches and headed inland.

Since the majority of the spring breaks are over, you’ll find beaches largely deserted and a lot of lodgings at lower priced specials to coax in stays. The warmest and sunniest days throughout the region are Tuesday and Wednesday, which will make weekday price breaks even more tempting.

Winds across the entire Pacific Northwest coastline will be fair to sizable, so if you’ve been thinking about kite flying these are good days for it. With most of the winds coming from the northwest, look for a lot of interesting stuff on the beaches, including various strange sea critters or curious debris.

Offshore seas will be slightly heavy through Monday, so a small amount of erosion could’ve taken place over the weekend. Continued low sand levels could result in fun finds at your usual favorite beaches, including plenty of agate beds around the Northwest coastline.

North and Central Washington Coast, from Westport through the Peninsula. Monday breaks out with sunny conditions and highs near 49 for areas like Ocean Shores or La Push. Tuesday through Wednesday is largely the same but with temps a little higher, into the low 50s.

On Thursday and Friday, rain or drizzle kicks back in and conditions get cloudier, with highs around 49.

Willapa Bay, Washington

South Washington and Northern Half of Oregon Coast. The NWS said that from Long Beach down through Cannon Beach, Lincoln City and Florence, Monday stays cloudy and rainy and with chilly temps. This region gets two days of sun: Tuesday and Wednesday with temps around 56.

On Thursday and Friday it’s a return to showers, although Friday will see some sun breaks. Nighttime lows will be close to freezing at 35 degrees, however.

Southern Oregon Coast. From the Oregon National Dunes Recreation Area through Port Orford, it’s a somewhat similar forecast as the northern half of the coast but maybe with not quite as much sun. Monday is still cloudy and rainy, but Tuesday begins a brief turnaround with mostly sunny skies and a high near 44. Wednesday – when much of the inland gets close to 70 degrees – this area remains mostly sunny and a high near 56.

Thursday and Friday are mostly cloudy with rain, which means you’ll get some sun breaks between showers. It will be chilly, in the low 40s, however.

It’s down on the extreme south coast where things get interesting, with Monday getting sunny – just like the northern parts of Washington. This is from about Gold Beach southward, but mostly Brookings.

“Also of note, a Chetco effect is expected Tuesday into Tuesday night, so temperatures in the Brookings area are likely to trend much warmer than normal as long as the northeast winds continue there,” the NWS said.

Monday is cold with a high in the 40s, Tuesday warms up to 53 and it’s on Wednesday when you get into the low 60s. There’s still some sun on Thursday but Friday gets damp and cloudy again. Oregon Coast Hotels in this area - South Coast Hotels - Where to eat - Maps - Virtual Tours
