The Best Months & Beaches for Storm Watching on the Oregon & Washington Coast
If you’ve ever been on the Oregon or Washington coastline during a storm, then you know how majestic and magical it can be, especially when you’re watching from a cozy beach cabin or condo or if you’re the adventurous type, go right out onto the beach and feel nature’s fury.
I’ve been present for many storms on the coast, mostly by accident, and have experienced winds as high as 90 mph while in Cannon Beach. There's nothing like hearing the wind howl, watching the waves crash, the seagulls glide, the rain pouring in sheets, and the sand dancing down the beach. Here's a video from our trip in 2019.
When are the best months to catch a storm? Well, according to visitcb.com November through March with peak storm activity from late November to late December. Scroll down and check out my favorite beaches for storm watching. Watch this short video from 2019 of a mild storm at Cannon Beach.
