Good morning. Jeju and Korea's south coast need to brace for powerful typhoon Chanthu. The typhoon will be hovering near waters south of Jeju on Friday morning, passing through the Strait of Korea that afternoon.
For a closer look, the storm looks to come close to Seogwipo on Jeju tomorrow morning around 8 am and Busan will feel the greatest impact around 5 pm.
A typhoon warning has been expanded to waters in southern parts of the West Sea, and in waters off Jeju. Typhoon related alerts will be expanded as the day goes on.
The further south you are, the more rainfall you will receive along with violent winds. The storm could dump more than 300 millimeters of torrential rain, but northern and central regions will not be affected by typhoon.
The afternoon high in the capital and Chuncheon will hit 28 degrees Celsius under sunny skies. Weather conditions will improve just in time for the start of the Chuseok holiday.
