Scorching conditions continue this weekend...take precautions against heat-related illnesses Updated: 2021-08-06 17:05:43 KST

We’re seeing a persistent pattern of heatwaves and tropical nights at the moment. This weekend, readings will hover near 33 degrees in the capital. And although showers will pass by at times, they won’t be enough for the heat to ease off. Rather, this rain will increase moisture levels, making temperatures feel closer to 35 degrees.

According to the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency, more than a 1-thousand people are coping with heat-related issues and 17 people have lost their lives. Workers who are more at risk due to the heat, such as farmers, fishers and medical personnel working outside, should take extra precautions.

Meanwhile, Typhoon Lupit is currently making its move towards Kyushu, Japan. Inland regions of South Korea won’t be directly impacted. But there is a chance that coastal areas of the South and Jeju Island may see gusty winds and rain next week.

Morning lows tomorrow will range from 24 to 27 degrees Celsius.

For the daytime, Seoul and Busan will get up to 33 degrees. Chuncheon 34 degrees. Daegu 35 degrees.

The intense heatwave will start to ease off starting next week.

That's all for now, and here are the weather conditions around the world.
