Westport Weather & Climate

West-Central Washingtion, along the coast, has mild summers and cold, wet winters. Severe storms hit Washington's coast during the winter, bringing heavy rains, strong winds, and high waves. Storms blow in about 70 to 100 inches of rain per year, the heaviest precipitation in the U.S. Coastal storm winds regularly top 40 miles per hour. During the summer, fog often moves in along Washington's coast. As the Pacific High, an area of high pressure, cools off over the Pacific Ocean, low stratus clouds form. At night, these clouds move inland as fog. This fog often burns off by mid-day, giving way to sunshine and pleasant temperatures.
