Korea will probably be spared the year's 12th and 13th typhoons this week.
Typhoon Muifa had been feared to travel north toward Korea after Chuseok but now seems headed to inland China, the Korea Meteorological Administration predicted on Monday.
Typhoon Merbok will likely dissipate in distant seas off Japan.
According to the KMA, Muifa will travel along the Chinese coast from Tuesday and pass waters off Shanghai on Thursday, Qingdao on Friday and the Bohai Sea on Saturday.
Muifa will nonetheless bring 30 to 120 mm of rain to Jeju by Tuesday night and 5 to 50 mm of rain to the entire country on Wednesday.
Merbok has been traveling to remote waters east of Tokyo since early Tuesday morning but will dissipate on Friday before reaching Korea.
