The climate in Oregon is cool and humid on the coast, semi-oceanic with hot and dry summers in the Willamette Valley, and arid continental in the plateau that covers the inland areas, similar to the Mediterranean climate in some areas. Oregon is sunniest in July and August with fog possible the rest of the year in the coastal areas and even inland. The Pacific Northwest is known for its high precipitation particularly the winter months, so the best time to visit the area taking into consideration temperature and rainfall would be May through October. Washington enjoys a similar climate to Oregon, so on our Pacific Northwest tour we recommend the same time to travel.
