NWS clarifies Hydrologic Outlook for Lincoln City

Lincoln City Flooding

National Weather Service Portland (NWS) issued a number of warnings for Lincoln County Friday morning, with only the Hydrologic Outlook applying to Lincoln City.

The grab bag of weather related alerts calls for high winds, heavy rains, high seas and the possibility of low-level snow for the Cascade Range and valley Friday and Saturday.

A meteorologist with NWS said Lincoln City would be largely unaffected by winds as it is at sea level. He was concerned with possible flooding in urban areas, creeks and maybe the Siletz River. NWS said they would be keeping a close eye on the situation and would issue another alert if things escalated.

According to the latest weather forecast, winds could reach 28 mph in Lincoln City.

NWS is predicting rain totals to be 1-3 inches for low-lying areas, such as Lincoln City.
