Here's an example sentence in English with this tense

On July 1st, it will have rained for 2 months

I understand that there's no such tense in Japanese, but how do I go about expressing it?
Here are some of my attempts




Please let me know of the correct way of expressing this tense and if any of my examples made sense at all

  • Just to confirm intent -- it sounds like you're trying to express the future completion of an ongoing action. Is that correct? Jun 11, 2021 at 16:02
  • @EiríkrÚtlendi not necessarily its completion. It may still be ongoing at this certain point in the future

    I think the title is misleading. The future perfect progressive would be “it will have been raining”, right?

None of your examples makes sense. 降ってきた would be understood as meaning it has begun to rain. 降ってくる sounds like something will come down.

I would say:

7月1日で2ヶ月間降った (or 降り続けた) ことになる。

If you need to add the progressive aspect, the following would do:

7月1日で2ヶ月間降っている (or 降り続けている) ことになる。
