Two contrasting weather patterns appeared again today. The sky across the Seoul metropolitan area seems to have had nothing to do with the typhoon at all, with clear skies prevailing. But down on Jeju Island it's a whole different story. Cumulative rainfall exceeded 1-thousand millimeters for this week. As for Typhoon Chanthu, it is currently exiting through the Korean Strait. It's forecast to make landfall in Japan at around midnight tomorrow. It will then gradually weaken into an extratropical cyclone, at around 3 AM tomorrow.

Although the typhoon moved away from the Peninsula this evening, parts of the South are still under its influence. For the remainder of the night, coastal areas of Gyeongsangnam-do Province will see 120 millimeters. Showers will continue for parts of Gangwon-do and Gyeongsang-do Provinces until tomorrow morning.

Tomorrow morning in Seoul will start off at 18 degrees Celsius and Jeju at 23 degrees.

For the daytime, Seoul and Chuncheon will get up to 28 degrees. Busan, Daejeon and Gwangju 27 degrees.

On the actual day of Chuseok, which is next Tuesday, nationwide showers are in the forecast.

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