Travel & Climate in Oregon

Oregon weather can be surprising, but it is always inspiring with a temperate oceanic climate – wet and cool in the fall, winter and spring and drier in the summer. The wettest months are typically November and December, and the driest, July and August.

The high desert climate east of the Cascade Mountains, is much drier, with less rain, more snow, colder winters, and hotter summers than the area west of the Cascades, which typically sees a chilly, overcast, wet winter with occasional light snowfall, and warm dry summers. Many of Oregon’s mountains have snow year round, and Mount Hood typically has some snow for year round skiing/boarding.
