Heavy rain in Chungcheongnam from tonight… Typhoon ‘Mawar’ unlikely to affect directly
Heavy rainfall of up to 100 millimeters accompanied by gusty winds and thunderstorms is expected in Chungcheong and southern regions starting tonight, the second day of the long weekend, so be careful about outdoor activities during the holiday.
In addition, the super typhoon ‘Mawar’ is expected to turn to the right and head north after the holiday, but it is unlikely to directly affect Korea.

On the first day of the holiday, the rain that started in the central region will expand across the country overnight.
This is because rain clouds formed between cold air in the north and warm air in the south are expected to gradually move south.
Due to the slow movement, accompanied by a stagnant front, the rain clouds are likely to intensify in the southern part of the country from Sunday night.
The Korea Meteorological Administration says 30 to 80 millimeters of rain will fall across the country, and up to 100 millimeters or more in South Chungcheong Province.
In addition, some areas are expected to experience strong rainfall of more than 20 millimeters per hour accompanied by gusts of wind and lightning, requiring extra caution for outdoor activities during the holiday.

Typhoon “Mawar” remains superficially strong as it passes over waters east of the Philippines.
It is expected to stall in the waters near Taiwan and turn to the right around Tuesday after the holiday, and both the Korean and US Japan Meteorological Services are predicting the same course.
After that, the typhoon’s path is very fluid.
However, the Korea Meteorological Administration says the typhoon is unlikely to directly affect South Korea given the seasonal timing and the surrounding barometer.

The Korea Meteorological Administration said that although there is no direct impact, there may be changes in the weather after the holiday depending on the typhoon situation, and asked people to pay attention to weather information.
