Typhoon Hagupit and the movement of monsoonal front Updated: 2020-08-03 17:05:19 KST

We're going to be expecting heavy rain of three-hundred millimeters in central regions until tomorrow. Having already received lots of rain and with typhoon Hagupit looking very likely to affect the formation of the monsoonal front, a landslide warning is in place for Chuncheon and southern Gyeonggi-do areas and a landslide advisory in northern parts of the Gyeonggi-do Province.
Let's now link up with our Lee Seung-min to find out more about the abysmal weather.
Seung-min, in what areas are we seeing the most amount of rain right now?

If you take a look at the current radar, this red part is where heavy rain clouds have formed at the moment.
In Seoul, the accumulated rainfall at this point is two-hundred millimeters.
In Gyeonggi-do Ansung, three-hundred millimeters of rainfall has been recorded.

Up until Wednesday, we'll be seeing up to five-hundred millimeters of rainfall.
Korea's meteorological administration is forecasting that this monsoon will last until the 13th of August. This is the longest monsoon season recorded yet in South Korea.

Now, things are a bit more complicated because we have to take into account of typhoon Hagupit.
Hagupit is set to land on Fuzhou, China tonight and will slowly recede towards Shanghai tomorrow.
Korea won’t be directly influenced but already this typhoon has contributed in forming heavy rain clouds as it is pushing strong vapors.
I'll be back with more updates later. Back to you, Conn-young.

Thank you, Seungmin for that. Our Lee Seungmin will be back with our regular weather forecast later in the broadcast.
