Typhoon Tapah is tracking through the sea south of the peninsula, and is forecast to cross the Strait of Korea by Sunday.
For more details, let's turn to our Michelle Park at the weather center, Michelle?

Typhoon Tapah will be close enough to bring rain to Jeju Island starting tonight.
According to the typhoon's trajectory, it will affect the southern regions through the early morning of Saturday and the central region by Saturday night.
The country will see the heaviest rain on Sunday, and by Monday, the typhoon will be out in the East sea and continue its way towards Japan.

This typhoon will be accompanied by some strong winds, but heavy rain will be a bigger problem.
Jeju Island and the south and eastern provinces will see the most precipitation with up to 400 millimeters until Monday.
The capital will only receive light rain of up to 40 millimeters.

Keep in mind the big temperature drops during the mornings and nights as well.
The morning lows are looking similar to today, mostly at around 16 to 20 degrees Celsius.

Into the day, Seoul will top 26 degrees, while the rainstorm will keep the mercury from rising in the south.
Daegu and Gyeongju barely reaching 20 degrees.
I hope you have a safe weekend, and stay dry.
