It was an absolute scorcher across inland regions as temperatures soared into the mid 30s this afternoon. In fact, Ansung city in Gyeonggi-do province recorded highs of 37.7 degrees today. This week-long heatwave is set to continue tomorrow in South Korea. As you can see, the entire nation has heatwave alerts issued. Exposure to excessive heat can lead to various health issues, such as disorientation and exhaustion. So, please take extra precautions to avoid any heat-related issues.
Hot air is creating instability in the air, and this will generate light showers until tomorrow dawn. Inland regions can expect 5 to 40 millimeters of rain coming and going. Thunder and lightning may also follow at times.
Central regions will be under overcast skies for the morning hours. The capital will start off at 26 degrees.
Baking conditions will dominate again tomorrow with similar daytime highs. Seoul and Daegu will get up to 35 degrees. Gwangju 32 degrees. Busan 31 degrees.
We do have nationwide showers in the forecast for the weekend. But they won’t be enough to alleviate the intense heat.
That's all for now, and here are the weather conditions around the world.
