This year's rainy season is practically over with the rain that fell in the southern region this morning (25th).
As the rainy season is over, the heat is rampant, but it is expected to get hotter towards the second half of the week, so you need to be thoroughly prepared for the heat wave.

The scorching sun is shining strongly under the clear blue sky.
In the southern regions, raindrops fell until this morning, and the rainy season is practically over this year.
This year, it rained heavily in the central region.
The central region receives an average of 378 mm of rain during the rainy season, but this year it rained 745 mm in Pocheon, 622 mm in Cheorwon, and 552 mm in Seoul.
On the other hand, Gwangju received only 209 mm of rain and Daegu 124 mm, which was less than the average annual rainfall of 341 mm.
As soon as the rainy season is over, the heat is rampant.
This is because the high pressure in the North Pacific, which is driving the heat wave, begins to move north in earnest, pushing up the rainy season front to the north.
Although strong localized downpours will often fall, the intense heat will come under the influence of the North Pacific high pressure.
Today, the temperature in Seoul and Daejeon will rise to 33 degrees and Daegu to 34 degrees.
A heat wave warning has been issued for most of the country except for Jeju Island and some eastern coasts.
The Korea Meteorological Administration predicted that a heat wave of around 33 degrees will continue throughout this week and that the temperature will rise further towards the second half of the week.
