Sunny, Warm Holiday Weekend for Oregon / Washington Coast; Above 80 South Coast

(Manzanita, Oregon) – Oregon's I-5 Corridor is headed for the 90s early in the week and the Oregon and Washington coast are looking at rather warm and sunny days through the holiday weekend and beyond. In fact, conditions get warmer the farther south you go until places like Coos Bay or Brookings are flirting with the 80-degree range or higher. (Photo above: Bandon, courtesy Manuela Durson)

“As the high pressure further develops over the weekend, conditions will be fairly settled and seasonable,” said the Portland office of the National Weather Service. “No precipitation is expected over the weekend, and temperatures will slowly increase by a few degrees each day.”

The Memorial Day weekend may have some hints of raindrops on Saturday morning, the NWS said, such as in the Coast Range. Otherwise, it's a slow march towards high temps on Tuesday, when Oregon will soar into the 90s.

“Still expecting high temperatures in the mid 60s along the coast, near 80 degrees inland, and the mid 70s along the Cascade foothills,” the NWS said.

The northern half of Washington, such as Seattle, won't get that high, however.

On the southern Oregon coast, the NWS office in Medford said the lower regions will be warmer than northward and records may be challenged.

“Temperatures along the coast will be warm as well, but not as significant as inland temperatures,” the NWS said. “Highs are expected to be around 5 to 10 degrees above normal north of Cape Blanco. South of Cape Blanco, the Chetco Effect will bring warmer temperatures to Brookings/Gold Beach where highs in the 80s are possible Monday and Tuesday.”

Upper Washington Coast: Saturday and Sunday are at least partly sunny with highs in the 60s to lower 70s. Winds will be about 10 to 15 mph.

Westport, Wash

Memorial Day along the region that includes Westport and Ocean Park will be sunny and glorious with temps around 70. Tuesday definitely warms up a little with most in the lower to mid 70s, while Wednesday continues that sunny trend but a little cooler. Thursday and Friday head back down into the 60s while remaining quite sunny.

North Oregon Coast (and South Washington Coast): Saturday may start off slightly cloudy but will clear off in many areas, especially farther south. The area that includes Long Beach down to Pacific City will be as high as 75 degrees in some spots. Sunday is similar in temperament, with slightly higher winds.

Memorial Day will see high 65 to 75 and sunny conditions. Tuesday, places like Cannon Beach Manzanita or Neskowin will be much cooler than just inland where it will be 90. It will be mostly sunny that day and linger in the 70s or so. Wednesday through Friday see partly cloudy skies and temps in the 60s.

The central Oregon coast – from Lincoln City down through Florence – will be very similar in forecast.

South Oregon Coast: Saturday and Sunday for areas like Reedsport, Coos Bay to Port Orford will be sunny and in the 60s or 70s. Memorial Day, however, starts to climb farther towards 80 for many areas, especially south of Gold Beach. Tuesday hits 80 for most of this area, but down at the southern end you could see the beaches around 90 degrees.

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday cool down a little, into the 80s for farther south and mostly the 70s or a little higher in Coos and Douglas counties.
