    Hot and humid weather has gripped Korea after a long weekend of rainfall across the country and is expected to last the rest of the week.
    The Korea Meteorological Administration said hot air blowing in from the east starting on Monday due to a high-pressure front grew even warmer as it passed over the Taebaek mountain range, and mixed with moisture that is lingering over central parts.
    Temperatures will remain high until at least June 5, with morning lows ranging from 15 to 21 degrees Celsius on Tuesday while daytime highs will hover between 19 and 29 degrees.
    Typhoon Mawar, which is now veering toward Okinawa, Japan, will funnel hot air into southern Korea.

    Meanwhile, 188 Korean tourists who were left stranded on Guam by the typhoon returned to Korea on Monday, and over 3,200 more are expected home in the next couple of days.
