    The Korea Meteorological Administration said rainfall will be concentrated in Chungcheong provinces and the south, with up to 300 mm of rain forecast.

    Central parts will see 50 to 100 mm of precipitation as storms lash the region until Tuesday morning. The rains will become more intermittent until they drench the entire county again early next week.

    The monsoon is expected to last until July 24.
