More rain is headed to Long Beach this week

By Staff Reports,


Another storm will bring more rain to Long Beach this week, though forecasters predict it will be milder than other atmospheric rivers that have doused the region this year.

Rain is expected to fall beginning Tuesday night, mostly after midnight, when forecasters currently predict there will be a 60% chance of precipitation. It will continue through Wednesday, mostly before noon, though a slight chance of rain will remain through Thursday.

“Our Tue-Wed storm will bring many hours of steady light rain,” the National Weather Service said in a tweet this morning, noting that chances for moderate to heavy rainfall “are rather low, especially compared to previous storms this year.”

The NWS currently projects that Long Beach will see 0.49 inches of rain over Tuesday and Wednesday.

So far this rain year, which began Oct. 1, Long Beach has seen almost double the amount of rain that meteorologists would consider “normal.” The city has received 19.31 inches, while a normal amount at this point would be 10.75, according to the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
