Snow Over for Oregon Coast Range, Big Waves Coming to Beaches

(Oregon Coast) – UPDATE: This narrative has completely changed since this initial report: A winter storm watch is in effect for the Coast Range with a POSSIBILITY of two or more inches of snow - along with a high wind warning for the Oregon coast and a flood watch.

Further details to come. Currently, only the large waves part of this story is valid.

The scary snow issues for the Oregon Coast Range are over, and the white stuff is certainly done with the beach towns. More excitement is around the corner, however, as some large waves smack into the coastline on and off this week.

The Oregon Coast Range is still under a winter weather advisory through 8 a.m. Monday morning, with the National Weather Service (NWS) predicting the majority of dustings to be over by then. In fact, the photos above were from the highway cameras on Highway 26 and Highway 6 towards the north coast, showing only snow on the sides of the roads early Monday morning.

Previous predictions of snowy weather on the coast range passes throughout the week have been changed to essentially rain only, which means your path will be clear towards the beaches. The NWS is expecting some small amounts of snow mixed with rain on Tuesday and Wednesday, and then a little bit on Wednesday night. Little to no snow accumulation is expected, however.

Along the beach towns, it’s largely rainy and cloudy, with sizable winds throughout the week. Although winds don’t much higher than 22 mph, however. Wednesday and Thursday are predicted to be partly sunny as well.

Some fairly heavy wave action is headed for the Oregon coast, however. In fact, it’s already here – at least out to sea. Monday will see combined seas of more than 15 feet at times, lowering a bit to 13 feet and then a bit lower than that on Wednesday.

Thursday, they pick up again to around 14 feet, and then some really big waves swoop in on Friday at around 23 feet. This could spell some beach warnings or advisories over the weekend, but certainly good stormwatch action along rocky spots like Yachats, Depoe Bay, Oceanside and south of Cannon Beach.
