There's finally some relief from the extreme heatwaves here in the capital, however, it's still sweltering hot in the southern provinces.

For more details, let's turn to our Michelle Park at the weather center, Michelle?

The nation has had some relief from the heatwaves but as soon as Typhoon Krosa dissipated over the East Sea, temperatures in the south and east coast regions soared back up into the mid-thirties and those regions were placed under heatwave advisories.

This weather is expected to continue into our weekend, with daytime highs not rising as high as 30 degrees for most parts.

But you may see between 5 to 20 millimeters of showers tomorrow.
The rain will start over the central region and move south by the afternoon, so plan your weekend accordingly.

The nation will be free from the tropical nights as Seoul begins Saturday at 23 degrees Celsius, while Busan and Jeju are higher at 24 and 25 degrees respectively.

Into the afternoon, Seoul will top 30 degrees while Daegu and Gyeongju are scorching hot at 34 degrees Celsius.

Next week, mostly sunny, sweltering summer weather is expected as the nation will be influenced by an area of high-pressure.
However, we will see fewer heatwaves throughout the rest of our summer.

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