Storm Watching and Beachcombing
January - March

Beachcombing: Many treasures drift up on the beaches for beachcombers to collect. Crab fishermen often have their buoys and lines cut off by other boats. If you are really lucky, glass floats still occasionally drift over from Japan. Items also fall from cargo ships during storms at sea.

Storm Watching: The Westport and Grayland beaches are regularly pounded by winter storms. The best times to see the storms at the beach are when the waves are over 15 feet. Heavy surf can be dangerous, so do not go near the surf in storm conditions. To find how big the waves are going to be, read the National Weather Service forecast for Cape Flattery to Cape Shoalwater.
