As Jangma Ends, Busan Records its Second Highest Precipitation in July Since 1973

The city of Busan recorded its second-highest precipitation in the month of July since 1973.

The Korea Meteorological Administration recorded 906mm of rain in Busan from June 24th to July 21.

Heavy rains in the southern regions this year seem to have resulted from abnormally high temperatures in Siberia with China and Japan also suffering rain damage.

This year’s rainy season lasted 38 days, or about a week more than normal.

Heatwave Set to Begin

The weather agency forecasts a fully-fledged heatwave to begin from yesterday and which is expected to last into September.

According to the Busan Regional Meteorological Administration, day temperatures are forecast to gradually rise, with the average temperatures in August forecast to be 1’C to 1.5’C higher than the average year, which is 25.4’C.

Even in September, hot and humid air and then from dry air coming from China will bring up the average temperatures by 0.5 to 1 degree higher than last year.

The number of heatwave days in August and September is forecast to be less than the highest record of 13.4 days in 2018 but more than the 10.3 days measured last year.

Heatwaves are measured when the maximum temperature of the day is 33’C or more.

Even though the rainy season has ended, heavy rains are likely to continue this month according to the KMA.
