Seung-min, what's the weather looking like now?

Well, Conn-young. We’re only seeing sporadic showers in Gangwon-do province for now. But this year’s monsoon season has been a historic one. A flood advisory has been issued for the Han River in the heart of Seoul for the first time in 9 years. But as rain clouds have moved towards the east, the rain has now eased in most areas. Heavy rain alerts have now all been lifted, including in Seoul.

Tomorrow it will be the turn of southern regions to see heavy rain. Up to 200 millimeters are in store for Chungcheong-do provinces and the South. Parts of Gyeonggi-do and Gangwon-do provinces along with Jeju island will see 30 to 80 millimeters. The rest of central regions, including Seoul, will see 5 to 40 millimeters.

For tomorrow morning, Seoul will kick off at 23 degrees Celsius. Daejeon, Gyeongju, and Busan at 24 degrees.

We'll see nationwide rain except for Jeju in the daytime. Seoul will reach 26 degrees.

Rain is set continue for the weekend. This long monsoon season is set to end next Saturday, the 15th.

For Korea's neighbors, Beijing and Tokyo will reach 33 degrees.

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