<Anchor> Since

yesterday (1st), I am worried about heavy rain in the central region. Why is it raining so much and what is the prospect of the rainy season in the future?

Reporter Seo, where is it raining a lot?


Yes, it is currently raining 10~20mm per hour in Seoul, the metropolitan area, and the central region.

In these regions, heavy rain advisory was in effect, and as rain clouds developed overnight, the heavy rain advisory expanded to Chungbuk.

A lot of rain has been predicted in North Korea as well, but the northern part of Gyeonggi, a river downstream, should be prepared more thoroughly.

During the weekend, heavy rain was forecast in the central region, but yesterday in Gwanak, Seoul, there was a very strong rain of 50mm per hour.

In Paju and Yeoncheon, Gyeonggi-do, the cumulative precipitation of rain only yesterday morning exceeded 100 mm.

It should be noted that the rain will be concentrated mainly in the morning hours.

<Anchor> The

southern region is said to be a heat wave, but why is it raining so much in the central region?


This is because the rainy season front, which has been staying in the south, has risen to the northern part of Gyeonggi and Hwanghae Island since then.

This is because the North Pacific high pressure, which had been unable to help throughout the summer, expanded the power and raised the rainy season, so the southern region began to heat.

In Yeongnam and Busan, heatwave warnings are in effect, but the maximum temperature in Ulsan and Daegu yesterday was over 34 degrees Celsius.

In the southern region, the high pressure of the North Pacific Ocean flows along the edges, and the low pressure located on the western coast of the Philippines developed into a typhoon at 9 o'clock last evening, and this typhoon adds this effect, and the heat wave is rising.

The reason why there is a lot of rain in the central region is also related to this barometer, and the warm and humid air from the south meets the rainy season front, intensifying atmospheric instability and spraying rain.


Toxic The rainy season feels long this year, but why is it so long and what is your prospect in the future?

<Reporter> In the

central region, the rainy season continues for 40 days.

The 32nd year of the year has already surpassed, but the reason why the rainy season is getting longer is because the cold air force in the north is strong and the North Pacific high pressure that has to push up the rainy season is ineffective.

Because of this, not only the central region, but also the southern region during this rainy season was long.

But the rainy season in the central region will continue.

The Korea Meteorological Administration predicted that the rainy season will continue in the central area for more than 10 days.

The rainy season in the central region was the longest on the 49th of 2013, but if the rain continues as forecasted by the Korea Meteorological Administration, this year will be the longest rainy season.

The end time is also the last time to end on August 10, 1987. Currently, the rain is forecast on August 11th, and the end time is also expected to be the slowest.

This Jangmatbi may have a difference in strength, but once today, a very strong rain of 50~80mm per hour is reserved in Seoul and the metropolitan area, so you have to prepare thoroughly.
