The 12th typhoon of the season, Omais, is making its move toward South Korea. This is the first typhoon of the year that’s directly passing over the Peninsula. As of the latest forecast, Omais will reach Jeju Island at around 8pm tonight, and is forecast to make landfall in Namhae, Gyeongsangnam-do province at around midnight. With the addition of the low pressure system coming from the West Sea, heavy rainfall will pound the entire nation.

Up to 400 millimeters of heavy rainfall is in store for the south coast and mountainous regions of Jeju Island. Along with the downpours, gusty winds will also follow across the south, and they will be strong enough to topple trees and even damage power lines. Central regions will also see heavy rain, close to 200 millimeters.

By the morning tomorrow, there will be heavy showers nationwide. Morning lows will range from 23 to 26 degrees Celsius.

Daytime highs will be 1 to 3 degrees higher than today. Seoul, Busan and Jeju will get up to 28 degrees. Daejeon and Gwangju 29 degrees.

Rain will taper off starting tomorrow night, but frequent showers are in the forecast for the south of the country this week.

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