One last bout of monsoon rain is expected in central regions over the weekend, including in the capital.
Let's turn to our Lee Seung-min at the Weather Center.
Seung-min, it appears as though we're finally coming to the end of the longer-than-unusual monsoon season?

Well, Conn-young. It's astounding to note that South Korea has seen 52 consecutive days of rain the longest monsoon season on record. But thankfully, this last band of monsoon rain is set to end this Sunday. Heavy downpours are expected in central regions until tomorrow afternoon.

In terms of the amount of rain, in lower parts of Gyeonggi-do province, heavy rain of 300 millimeters are in store. In Seoul metropolitan area 100 to 200 millimeters are expected. In parts of Gangwon-do and Chungcheong-do provinces, up to 150 millimeters are in forecast.

But in southern regions, where no rain is in forecast, baking hot weather is set to continue. Most parts of Gyeongsang-do Province have heatwave warnings in place.

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

For the daytime, Seoul will reach 27 degrees. Daegu 36 and Gyeongju 35 degrees.

After the monsoon is over, tropical nights will begin for most parts of the Korean peninsula.

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