The climate of Long Beach (California - United States of America)
Long Beach is located in the southern part of California on the Pacific Ocean in Los Angeles County. Long Beach is one of the world’s busiest seaports and one of the most important ports in America. This region was originally home to the Tongva Indians who lived here till the beginning of the 19th century. A tropical storm made landfall here once in the twentieth century and was named Long Beach Tropical Storm. This storm caused a large amount of damage in Long Beach and in several places located further into the interior. Sadly, this storm also caused a few casualties. Because of the influence of the Pacific Ocean temperatures are tempered all year round. During the summer Long Beach is often shrouded in fog which forms during the night and dissolves during the afternoon. Because of a westerly sea wind high temperatures and precipitation hardly ever occur at the same time. This causes humidity figures to remain low and the many heat waves to be bearable. The Palos Hills block the air current from east to west. Because of this it is more difficult for rain clouds to reach Long Beach. Because of this it is drier in Long Beach than in other places in Los Angeles County such as Manhattan Beach and Santa Monica. Just like in most places in California precipitation figures are highest during the winter. Storms often are accompanied by heavy rainfall. However, precipitation figures in Long Beach are lower than in cities located on the San Gabriel or San Bernadino mountain ranges which are located further into the interior. Here, rainfall is amplified by differences in altitude in the terrain.

More climate information
Climate figures are very useful but don’t present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures don’t always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
