Let's turn to our Lee Seung-min at the Weather Center.
Seung-min, when is the monsoonal front set to return?

Well, Conn-young. We’re finally taking some respite from the monsoon rain. But with unstable atmospheric conditions, light isolated showers will be coming and going up until later this evening. Excluding parts of the east coast, in most parts of the nation, up to 80 millimeters are in forecast tonight. In the Seoul metropolitan area and parts of Gangwon-do and Chungcheong-do provinces, showers will prolong until tomorrow.

A heatwave brought oppressive warmth to most parts of the nation. In Seoul, a heatwave advisory has been issued. In coastal areas of Gangwon-do and parts of Gyeongsangbuk-do Province, warnings are in effect. So, be sure to drink plenty of fluids and avoid prolonged outdoor activities.

For tomorrow morning, Seoul will kick off at 26 degrees Celsius. Daegu and Busan at 25 degrees.

For the daytime, Seoul will reach 29 degrees. Daegu 35 and Busan 30 degrees.

Monsoon rain is back in store on Friday. For the Seoul metropolitan area and Gangwon-do Province, showers are set to last until this Sunday.

For Korea's neighbors, Beijing will see scorching highs of 34 degrees.

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