Monsoon rain is back to wet the peninsula Updated: 2019-07-17 16:31:39 KST

Seems like we will see more rain during the second half of this week, with monsoon rain already drenching Jeju Island.

For more details, let's turn to our Michelle Park at the weather center, Michelle?

Yes, the monsoon has already begun to wet Jeju and some of the southern provinces, which will expand up to the southern Gyeonggi-do and Gangwon-do provinces after mid-night.
This monsoon is expecting to bring up to 100 millimeters of rain in the south coast and Jeju area, and less amount as we move upwards.

Meanwhile, the capital won't seem to be affected by the monsoon, staying under just cloudy skies tomorrow.
But it will be hot and steamy as Beijing.

Most parts of the country will wake up to a wet condition.
Seoul at 23 degrees Celsius, and very similar elsewhere with Busan and Jeju starting off to 22 and 24 degrees respectively.

Into the afternoon, Seoul and Chuncheon will hit 33 degrees, whereas the rest will have lower readings.

It looks like, the rain will continue for some time as Typhoon Danas is making its way north from the Philippines.
It's expected to pass Taiwan and gradually approach the Korean Peninsula over the next couple of days.
Keep in mind as the typhoon's course changes, that'll affect the amount of rain and where it will fall.

But as for now, we are seeing more rain from Sunday to Monday, so please stay updated with the forecast.

I'll leave you with the weather conditions around the world.
