Sweltering heat will grip the country following over a month's monsoon.
The Korea Meteorological Administration forecast no rainfall other than some showers after the monsoonal front recedes Monday.
Temperatures in Seoul are expected to reach 30 degrees Celsius, while southern and eastern coastal areas will be even hotter with temperatures reaching 34 degrees in Daegu, Gangneung and Pohang.
Scorching heat waves without rain will continue until early August.
Tropical nights when the mercury refuses to fall below 25 degrees all night are also poised to spread across the country. Gangneung already suffered seven tropical nights.
