Forecast for Central Oregon Coast
Updated: 10:04 am PST on November 28, 2014
Rain until midday...then rain and a slight chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon. Windy. Highs around 55. South wind 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 45 mph becoming southwest 10 to 20 mph in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation near 100 percent. Rainfall amounts around a half of an inch.
... Unseasonably mild weather to give way to much colder temperatures and possible low elevation snow beginning tonight...
While southwest Washington and northwest Oregon have been experiencing record setting warmth for the last several days... a major change in the weather pattern is on the way. A strong cold front will move through the region from north to south tonight. While snow levels will initially be high... they will lower dramatically behind the front. As a result... Post frontal showers may fall as a mix of rain and snow down to the valley floor late tonight and Saturday before the precipitation ends by Saturday night.
Travel will become increasingly difficult through the Cascades and eventually the foothills tonight as rain changes to snow and starts to accumulate on area roads. An initial burst of heavy snow is expected with the cold front tonight... then snow showers will continue through much of Saturday. Several inches of new snow are possible in these areas by the time snow tapers off Saturday night.
Offshore flow will then develop Saturday night... with gusty east winds continuing through Sunday. Areas in and around the western Columbia River gorge may see wind gusts of 50 to 70 mph at times Sunday. The easterly flow will also usher in a period of much colder temperatures as it pulls in air from an Arctic air mass on the east side of the Cascades.
