I am curious if anyone knows if Eugene and Portland get the same amounts of fog. I am currently in Eugene, and there is usually a lot of fog in addition to the clouds. It basically makes it so you can't see the mountains, which are very close.

Is Portland the same way? Is there a lot of fog that reduces visibility, or is it mostly moving clouds? I am assuming that perhaps since Eugene is "nestled" in the end of the Willamette Valley that it gets more fog, but I am not sure.

If that is the case, then I would also assume that Portland gets more "Sun Breaks" than Eugene. Can anyone chime in on this?

Portland is at the mouth of the Columbia Gorge, where the wind blows. There is a lot less fog in Portland because it blows away. In exchange, you get periodic ice storms, as warm Pacific fronts ride up over arctic winds coming down the Gorge in the winter.
