Rain clouds moving in, heavy rain expected for weekend Updated: 2020-08-07 17:02:37 KST

Rain has eased temporarily in central regions, but downpours are drenching parts of the south here in Korea.
Let's turn to our Lee Seung-min at the Weather Center to find out more.
Seung-min, what are the conditions looking like now?

Well, Conn-young. Right now, in Chungcheong-do Province and the south, heavy rain of 20 to 30 millimeters per hour is falling. Today is actually Ipchu , which marks the beginning of autumn in South Korea. But unlike what the seasonal calendar notes, Chungcheong-do Province and southern regions are already seeing heavy downpours. Warnings are in place for Jeolla-do, and advisories have been issued in parts of Gyeongsang-do and Chungcheong-do provinces.

Rain clouds are set to move to the upper parts of the country tomorrow. As a result, we’ll be seeing up to 100 millimeters in central regions, including Seoul. In lower parts of Gyeonggi-do, Gangwon-do and Chungcheong-do provinces, and parts of the South, up to 300 millimeters are expected. In Jeollanam-do and Gyeongsangnam-do provinces, up to 150 millimeters are in forecast.

For tomorrow morning, Seoul will kick off at 22 degrees Celsius. Daejeon, Gwangju, Gyeongju, and Busan at 24 degrees.

For the daytime, we'll see rainy spells nationwide except for on Jeju Island.

Nationwide rain will continue on until next Tuesday. Showers will last a bit longer in the Seoul metropolitan area until next Friday.

For Korea's neighbors, Tokyo will reach 33 degrees.

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