Lincoln City's weather is temperate. The weather changes from year to year and can depend on variables such as El Nino. Pacific Ocean water currents also play a part in the temperature. Weather extremes such as very high temperatures or extremely low temperatures are not the norm in Lincoln City. Many Lincoln City residents consider Lincoln City to be located in the banana belt - just south of Cascade Head and tucked away from the north coast. Temperatures are usually warmer here than those of the north coast. Wind direction can influence temperature. Winds can sometimes be stronger in the summer. Often September and October have the best weather with mild temperatures and less wind.

Weather Center
Lincoln City has purchased land at the end of 51st St across from Mo's for a weather center. The plan is to construct a facility that will provide accurate weather data for the central Oregon coast as well as a family-oriented tourist attraction. Lincoln City needs to provide accurate weather information to tourist markets in the population centers of Oregon and beyond. The weather center has backing from the Governor's Office of Community Solutions.

Weather wise - play it safe - use caution
A few tips to make living and visiting here safe

1. watch for sneaker waves on the beach
2. stay away from logs on the beach that can roll in the surf - avoid danger that can kill
3. if you feel an earthquake head for high ground immediately and stay there, a tsunami (gigantic wave) may be headed for the coast, the second wave can be more destructive than the first. Watch for evacuation route signs. Public access TV Charter Cable Channel 4 airs an educational video about tsunamis that is well worth the time to view.
