Good morning. It's a rainy and gloomy start to the new work week. It's been raining in parts of the west, including Seoul but will expand nationwide as the day goes on.
It will rain throughout the day so keep an umbrella handy, 5 to 60 millimeters of precipitation is in store nationwide and rain will pick up after lunch in the capital region.
Heat warnings have been downgraded to advisories for many central regions, including Seoul with an expected high of 30 degrees Celsius. Daegu will be blistering hot at 33 degrees.
There won't be stifling heat for this with highs in the low thirties along BUT continuous tropical nights.
Along with the rain, humidity will rise to 70 to 100 percent on top of the heat, forming ideal conditions for bacterial growth. The crisis alert for food poisoning is the highest across Korea. Be mindful of food safety and stay sharp before, during, and after cooking.
That's Korea for you and here's a look at weather conditions around the world.
