Mike Challis is the founder of the first Long Beach Weather web site: "In 2006, I was fed up with all of the mainstream weather sites using Astoria weather reports for Long Beach. My hobby is computers and web programming, making the first useful weather web site for Long Beach, WA was an enjoyable project." - Mike Challis

"Since I am going to move to FL in March, 2020, this Long Beach Weather station has been relocated from 81st and Sandridge to a new location at 196th Pl. just west of Pacific Hwy. Jackie Sheldon is now the new owner of the station. The web site has been updated to reflect the new location. I have graciously donated the weather station to Jackie so the local community can continue to enjoy it. Jackie is already known as our local weather maven and I am proud to leave behind the 642weather legacy in her capable hands." - Mike Challis

The Long Beach Peninsula is an arm of land in western Washington state. It is bounded on the west by the Pacific Ocean, the south by the Columbia River, and the east by Willapa Bay. Leadbetter Point State Park and Willapa National Wildlife Refuge are at the northern tip of the peninsula, Cape Disappointment State Park, formerly known as Fort Canby State Park is at the southern end, and in between is Pacific Pines State Park. Cape Disappointment, part of the Lewis and Clark National and State Historical Parks west of Ilwaco, was the westernmost terminus for the Lewis and Clark Expedition, and a monument designed by Maya Lin as part of the Confluence Project was dedicated there in 2005. The Long Beach Peninsula is remarkable for its continuous sand beaches on the Pacific Ocean side, 28 miles in extent, claimed to be the longest beach in the United States. Because of the fine beaches, it is a popular vacation destination for people from Seattle, Washington, 165 miles distant, and Portland, Oregon, 115 miles distant.
