This heat is not going away even in the evening.

A tropical night is also expected tonight (2nd).

A reporter is out at Han River Park in Yeouido, Seoul.



Reporter Suwon-wook Suwon, I see people escaping from the heat in the park, how about there?



<Reporter>



Yes, it's really hot.



I've been here for two hours, and while I've been out in the sun for a while, my whole body is wet with sweat.



As you can see, there are many citizens who visit Hangang Park to escape the heat.



A heat wave warning has been issued for most of the country. Gyeongsan, Gyeongsangbuk-do recorded a whopping 38 degrees Celsius, and Uiseong, Gyeongsangbuk-do's highest temperature today was 37.2 degrees, Daegu 36.8 degrees, and Seoul 33.8 degrees.



Daejeon, Busan, and Taebaek also recorded the hottest daytime temperatures ever observed in early July.



As of 12 noon today, the heat wave crisis warning level was also raised from 'caution' to 'alert', and the alert was issued 18 days earlier than last year.



Tonight, it is predicted that tropical nights that do not drop below 25 degrees will appear in Gangneung, Daejeon, Daegu, and Jeju.



It will be hot tomorrow too.



The daytime maximum temperature is expected to be similar to today, with 33 degrees Celsius in Seoul, Gwangju and Gangneung, and 35 degrees Celsius in Daegu and Daejeon.



The Korea Meteorological Administration predicted that the heat would continue for a while due to the influence of the North Pacific high pressure, but it urged you to drink plenty of water and salt and to refrain from outdoor activities from noon to 5 pm.
