Searing temperatures continue with an intense heatwave by day and increased humidity at night. In fact, tropical nights with lows of above 25 degrees Celsius have been a constant in the capital Seoul for the past eight days. Due to unstable air created from the extreme heat, there will be isolated showers tonight across inland regions.
If you feel a bit stuffier than normal while wearing a face mask, it means you are wearing it correctly. This is because of the high moisture levels in the air, raising discomfort levels. Things will get even stuffier tomorrow, with most regions under discomfort index in the "very high" range. The best way to avoid any discomfort at this time of year is to limit your time outdoors and to drink plenty of water.
The capital will start off sunny tomorrow. Morning lows will range from 23 to 26 degrees nationwide.
Under blazing sunshine, UV ray index will stand in the "very high" range. Seoul will get up to 35 degrees. Daejeon and Gyeongju 34 degrees. Busan 31 degrees.
Temperatures will stay near 34 degrees until the weekend. Nationwide showers are in the forecast for Saturday.
That's all for now, and here are the weather conditions around the world.
