Shorter days and cooler nights are signaling the return of fall. With the onset of fall season travels across the country, the Korea Meteorological Administration (KMA) has released the weather forecast for the season.
Overall, this year’s fall weather looks to be similar to last year’s. Due to unstable atmospheric conditions, heavy rainfalls are expected in several regions during early September. Then, a migratory anticyclone will bring dry and hot weather with clear skies through the end of the month. The dry and hot weather will continue through early October, before the continental anticyclone begins to expand, resulting in a gradual cool-down across the country. Finally, November will see mostly clear and dry days with greater temperature changes influenced by migratory and continental anticyclones.
