LONG BEACH — Windy weather remains the rule on the coast in the middle of this week, with a gale warning in effect through Wednesday afternoon from Cape Shoalwater to Florence, Ore., and out 10 nautical miles.

    Winds to 45 knots (52 mph) were forecast for Tuesday evening through Wednesday, with combined seas to 17 feet.

    These breezy offshore conditions may translate into a south wind 30 to 40 mph on the Long Beach Peninsula, with gusts to 60 mph, according to a high-wind watch issued Tuesday by the National Weather Service in Portland.

    Over the weekend, the peak wind speed at Radar Ridge was 86 mph on Jan. 2 and it reached 78 mph at Megler Mountain.
