As I'm in northern California now and will be going into Oregon before heading home, I'm wondering where you guys get your regional weather forecasts. I don't want to ride into a brewing tornado.

Tornados? Nah, sunny and warm until October. West coast weather is the most benign in the country this time of year.

I usually check the animated radar at Intellicast.com before heading out.

I use "My Radar" app or the weather channel app on my I phone.
I went looking yesterday and discovered a "My radar" app for my phone, it looks good.

BTW, the wind howled all the way through New Mexico, Nevada and almost to San Fran.

Weather in Coos Bay, Oregon.

Right now, 6-19-14 at 8:00 p.m. in Coos Bay, it's 70 degrees with fair skies. No rain forecasted for the next week. Tornadoes are very rare in Oregon, only heard of three in the last 30 years. If your riding up the coast, (hwy 101) watch out for motorhomes and cars slowing to look at the scenery. Especially north of Florence. Road is narrow and very curvy in spots. Views are fantastic. Pull over at the view points to sight see. Ride safe!!

we are going up 101, in Eureka now and it is freezing! (low 60's) it'll be in the high 40's in the morning, crazy temps for June and being from Florida.

60 is pretty normal.

It will be colder in the morning and warm up as the day progresses. I'll be out of town tomorrow.

Give me a call now, on my cell. 1-541-two-nine-seven-1703.

Yea, it was crazy that after all those miles we were just a few miles apart. Spent Tuesday in the Petrified Forest and almost got blown over moe than once. Wednesday to Phoenix was much better. Could actually enjoy the ride.
