It will still be hot during the day on Tuesday but cool at night, the Korea Meteorological Administration forecast. The sweltering heat that has affected the country this summer is gradually retreating, with the last tropical night when temperatures stayed above 25 degrees seen in Jeju on Saturday.
The KMA said Korea is coming under the influence of a cold dry anticyclone from the North bringing fine but occasionally cloudy weather.
Only the eastern part of Gangwon Province is forecast to see rain of less than 5 mm between late afternoon and evening. During the day, the sun will still be blazing hot and temperatures hover around 30 degrees nationwide, a weatherman said.
Rain is expected across the nation on Thursday. After the rain, the daily high will begin to fall below 30 degrees later this week and autumnal weather will set in, the KMA forecast.
