Thunderstorms hit the center, but heat waves linger in the south-Chosun Ilbo: Daily News from South Korea

Thunderstorms hit the central part, but the southern part is still hot and humid with heat waves. The Seoul submarine was closed on Thursday after heavy rains of over 200 mm poured into the Seoul metropolitan area, submerging some parts of the capital and causing confusion during the morning commute.

Seryo Station on Subway Line 1 in Suwon, Gyeonggi Province was flooded on Wednesday and Thursday after a maximum of 330 mm of rain in southern Seoul.

This year’s monsoon brings heavy rains at night, with strong winds of up to 15 meters per second.

However, the southern and east coasts are exposed to heat waves, with daytime highs in Daegu and Pohang exceeding 34 degrees Celsius.

The Korea Meteorological Administration has announced that it will rain another 50mm to 150mm on Friday in the Seoul metropolitan area and Gangwon-do. The temperature is expected to rise in the afternoon.

The southern part of the country, where it was not raining or had minimal amounts, will suffer from tropical nights when nocturnal temperatures do not fall below 25 degrees Celsius. Early morning temperatures reached 23.4 degrees Celsius in Busan, and tropical nights continued in Daegu, Pohang, Gumi, Hainan, Hainan, Takabashi, and Jeju Island.

Temperatures on Friday are expected to range from 33 to 35 degrees Celsius in many parts of the country.
