Daytime highs to hover 30 degrees nationwide…high levels of UV rays Updated: 2020-06-03 17:11:43 KST

Time now to get a check on the weather, so let's go over to our Lee Seung-min at the Weather Center.
Seung-min, today was hotter than yesterday in the capital. Also, heatwave advisories have been issued in some southern regions. What more can you tell us?

Right, Conn-young. And this sizzling heat will continue throughout the nation. The first heatwave advisories of the year have been issued in Gyeongsangbuk-do and Gyeongsangnam-do Provinces and in the city of Daegu. These advisories will take effect from 11 am tomorrow. Normally, heatwave advisories are issued when body temperatures have the potential to exceed 33 degrees Celsius for two consecutive days.

Southern regions will continue to stay baking hot for the week with daytime highs of over 30 degrees.

Also, the UV ray index will continue to stay at 'very high' levels nationwide excluding Suwon city. Sunburn can take as little as 10 minutes, so refrain from outdoor activities if possible.

Tomorrow, Seoul will start off warm at 19 degrees, Gwangju and Daegu at 20 degrees.

Daytime temperatures will be a bit cooler in the capital with 26 degrees. In Daegu and Gyeongju, expect scorching highs of 34 degrees.

For Korea's neighbors, Beijing will reach up to 29 degrees with very high UV ray levels, so please wear plenty of sunblock.

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