Weather or Not: Thunder & a Clammin’ Calamity

Chris Burns Weather

Monday, May 18th – Lincoln County

Summary: Even though we’re smack dab in the middle of an unstable weather situation, yesterday (like Saturday) turned out pretty darned nice. Skies were partly to mostly sunny with no precipitation recorded. The mercury climbed to the upper-50s and the only fly in the ointment was the blustery northwest wind blowing 10-15 mph gusting to 25 in the afternoon. Scattered clouds and a fading breeze took us through sunset and into the evening hours. Overnight was calm with a marine cloud layer developing around 4:00am. At daybreak, the overcast was thinning and there was no wind.

Past 24 Hours High/Low/Rain…
Lincoln City: 58F/51F
Depoe Bay: 59F/48F
Newport: 57F/43F
Waldport: 57F/47F
Yachats: 58F/51F

Forecast: It looks like a rerun today as the marine clouds dissolve into partly to mostly sunny skies and the WON SUN-CLOUDSthermometer elbows its way up to near 60F. There is a chance of isolated showers in the mix this afternoon, too, along with northwest winds 5-15 mph. The cloud deck returns again tonight and lows dip to 50F. Tomorrow, expect mainly cloudy conditions, sunbreaks, light winds and a high of 55-60F. Outlook is for very little deviation from the current set-up Wednesday through Sunday.

Travel: A Special Weather Statement has been issued by the National Weather Service for scattered WARNING NWS SWSthunderstorms with localized heavy rain expected this afternoon and evening across Northwest Oregon, excluding the Central Coast. Any thunderstorms which develop will have access to plentiful moisture and will be slow moving so there is some concern for highly localized urban and small stream flooding in the areas affected. The best chance of these heavier showers and thunderstorms occurring in the Willamette Valley will be late this afternoon, just in time for the commute. The Corvallis, Salem, Eugene and Portland metro areas may be affected. Heavy downpours would likely cause some minor travel issues due to ponding on roadways.

In the Coast Range today, scattered showers and thunderstorms, mostly cloudy with 65-70F. Valley destinations are expecting partly sunny, scattered showers and thunderstorms and highs of 70-75F. The Columbia River Gorge forecast calls for showers, thunderstorms, light wind, temps around 80F. For the Cascades, there’s bare pavement on the highways this morning, temperatures are 40-45F; widespread showers and scattered thunderstorms, with the snow level at 8,000 feet.

Cascades Snow Pack: Currently 16”; a loss of 3” since yesterday; an overall loss of 6” in the past seven days; 87” less than this date last year; over 90% below the 30-year average Snow Water Equivalent (total amount of moisture in the snow pack).

Marine: Winds are N 10-15 knots with seas 5 feet at 13 seconds this morning, and that’s also the forecast through WON MARINE WXtomorrow. Outlook is for the same conditions to last unabated until at least Friday. Always check the latest Bar Reports before you venture offshore.

On the Beach… Sun and clouds, breezy, surf 4-5 feet (low).
* SPECIAL NOTICE FOR SHELLFISH HARVESTERS: The best minus tide series so far this year will be a bust for razor clam diggers as the Oregon Department of Agriculture has closed the entire Oregon Coast to the harvest of razors due to elevated levels of the shellfish toxin, domoic acid. This includes all beaches and bays. Also, the harvest of mussels is now closed from Cascade Head (north of Lincoln City) to the north jetty of the Rogue River (by the town of Gold Beach on the South Coast) due to elevated levels of Paralytic Shellfish Toxin. The mussel closure includes all beaches, jetties, rocks and bays. Recreationally harvested razor clams and mussels are unsafe to eat at this time.
