Wednesday, Jan. 28th – Lincoln County
Summary: Bland weather dominated the Central Coast yesterday. We had mostly cloudy skies, a few brief sunbreaks, light winds and a handful of raindrops, which fell early in the day and left only trace amounts in the rain gauges. High temps were in the 50s. Though it remained cloudy throughout the evening and overnight, there was a bright spot as the familiar flash of Yaquina Head Lighthouse once again pierced the gl...

Farther up the coast, amounts ranged from a third to three-quarters of an inch north of Cascade Head, to around an inch at Astoria and over two inches at Forks, Washington. The overcast was punctured by a few s...
