It was a scorching day, and the humidity didn't make things better.
But seems like we will have to endure these conditions a bit longer.
For more details, let's turn to our Michelle Park at the weather center, Michelle?
Hi guys, although today was Ipchu in Korea, a seasonal milestone that marks the advent of autumn, the whole nation was issued heatwave alerts, with the capital Seoul upgrading its heatwave alert to a heatwave warning.
Along with constant showers, a stuffy, humid and hot Friday afternoon is in store, with temperatures in Korea tomorrow expected to rise to higher levels than in Beijing.
It's going to be an uncomfortable night too, with Seoul and almost all regions in the country waking up to at least 24 degrees Celsius.
We are most likely to have a repeat of today's weather tomorrow, hot and sunny with isolated showers at times.
Seoul will reach 34 degrees and a degree or so higher in the southern regions, including Daegu and Gyeongju.
Further down south, Typhoons Lekima and Krosa are side by side heading up north.
Typhoon Lekima is inching closer and growing stronger by the day.
The storm isn't expected to influence the nation directly, but we need to keep an eye on its trajectory for a few more days, as it can easily make a detour and land on the Korean Peninsula.
I'll leave you with the weather conditions around the world.
