Weather or Not: Autumn Memories

Chris Burns Weather

Friday, October 16th – Lincoln County

Summary: Yesterday started off like it was going to be another unseasonable barnburner with sunshine and very warm temperatures, but an October surprise shut it down in the early afternoon. Dense fog developed rapidly as the wind switched from east to southwest allowing cool ocean air to collide head-on with the warm humid air from the east (the ideal recipe for fog along the coast). Visibility dropped to a half mile or less while the mercury quickly settled down into the 50s. There was even some drizzle reported. The fog continued through much of the night and was still around at dawn, albeit thinner with visibility rising to 3 miles or better. By the way, we’re down to just 11 hours of daylight today and still losing about 3 minutes a day.

Past 24 Hours High/Low…
Lincoln City: 67F/54F
Depoe Bay: 67F/52F
Newport: 64F/52F
Waldport: 62F/53F
Yachats: 63F/52F

Regional Record Highs Yesterday…
Vancouver: 81F, surpassing the old mark of 80F in 2002
Portland: 80F, tying the previous record of 80F in 1991
