Good morning. The monsoon season starts in inland regions today. It's just drizzling now in Seoul but we could see downpours during the evening commute while rain will pour down on the southern provinces tonight.
There is a very high chance that a heavy rain advisory will be issued in the capital and surrounding regions, while heat alerts have been lifted in many places except in Daegu and parts of Gyeongsangbuk-do Province.
Monsoon rain brings some relief from the heat for the capital region Seoul will see highs in the mid-twenties but brace for a massive amount of rainfall.
Elsewhere will also see highs going 2 to 5 degrees lower this afternoon, Chuncheon at 25 degrees Celsius, Daejeon at 29 degrees.
More monsoon rain is in the forecast over the weekend in the southern provinces with wet, dark and humid conditions staying through the end of June.
With that, here's a look at the weather conditions around the world.
