Scorching conditions are back, with most of the country under heatwave advisories.

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

Today is 'Jungbok' in Korea, marking the second of the three hottest days of the summer.
And the weather forecast proves this right, as most of the nation is suffering under a heatwave, because hot and humid air has flowed into the country following the recent typhoon.
Heatwave advisories have been issued for tomorrow as well, so try to find ways to beat this steaming hot weather.

Although, the nation will hover under cloudy skies tomorrow, the daytime highs will climb well into the thirties.
Also, there are some chances of local showers during the afternoon, so it might be wise to have an umbrella handy.

The nation is very close to having tropical nights as its morning lows are mostly staying as warm as 24 degrees Celsius.

Tuesday's daytime high in Seoul will peak at 32 degrees Celsius, while Chuncheon and Gyeongju go a bit higher at 33 and 34 degrees respectively.

There will be some relief from the heatwave when another monsoon front reaches Korea later this week.
The monsoon rain will start on Wednesday night from the west of the peninsula, spreading nationwide by Thursday.

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