late rainy season this year's rainy season does not reach the central region and is expected to end around Monday next week.

Now, I'm worried about the heat wave, and next week, it is predicted that the Korean Peninsula will be trapped in a so-called heat dome that has brought a murderous heat wave to various parts of the northern hemisphere.

heat wave warnings and heat wave advisories issued across the country, the temperature is rising rapidly.

Today, the daytime maximum temperature in Daegu is expected to rise to 35 degrees, and Seoul is also expected to reach 33 degrees.

In particular, due to high humidity, the sensible temperature is expected to rise higher.

The rainy season front, which has retreated to the east of Japan, is expected to go north around this coming Sunday and sprinkle rain in Chungcheong and southern regions, and rain all over the country on Monday.

In particular, it is highly likely that the rainy season will end after this rain.

The problem is the storm.

This is because the North Pacific high pressure is expected to expand to the Korean Peninsula after the rainy season is over, and the hot Tibetan high pressure is expected to expand over Korea.

As the North Pacific high pressure and the Tibetan high pressure expand to the Korean Peninsula at the same time, the so-called heat dome phenomenon in which the Korean Peninsula is trapped in the hot heat is expected.

This is similar to 2018, when the heat wave continued for a month and was recorded as the hottest year.

According to the Korea Meteorological Administration, it remains to be seen whether this summer will have a record-breaking heat wave and a prolonged heat wave like in 2018.
