    As a nationwide drought grows worse, weathermen forecast much less rain than usual during this summer's monsoon season.

    Dry weather is expected to continue until July and the drought until August.

    The Korea Meteorological Administration on Sunday said lighter-than-usual rainfall is expected during the summer monsoon, which means the drought is likely to get even worse nationwide.

    The Ministry of Public Safety and Security said dry weather will "gradually ease after precipitation returns to normal levels in August."

    According to the ministry, the amount of rainfall in the last six months stood at only 69 percent of the normal average of 331 mm.
