[아시아경제 한진주 기자] The sweltering heat continues until the weekend, with daytime highs exceeding 35 degrees.

At a regular briefing by the Korea Meteorological Administration on the 22nd, forecast analyst Woo Jin-gyu said, “The North Pacific high pressure occupied Korea, and the Tibetan high pressure expands to the south in the upper atmosphere, and the hot air of the tropical cyclone caused by tropical disturbances is added to the west, making it hotter than 33 degrees Celsius until the weekend. will show,” he explained.

By Sunday, the 25th, the nation’s highest daytime temperature is expected to rise to 35 degrees, and in the western part of the country, such as the metropolitan area, the temperature is expected to rise to over 38 degrees. At the beginning of next week, the temperature will drop slightly to around 33 degrees, but the national daytime high temperature is expected to rise and fall between 30 and 36 degrees until the 31st.

Typhoons are also a factor in heat waves. Typhoon 6 is expected to move to southern China and land near Shanghai on the 25th. The Korea Meteorological Administration explains that typhoons can raise the temperature by pouring out heat and water vapor.

Analyst Woo said, “Even after the 6th typhoon landed near Shanghai, China on the 25th, it can play a role in accumulating heat in Korea, and the temperature will generally increase depending on the phase of the typhoon. continues,” he said.

In addition to the heat island phenomenon, in which the temperature in the city center is higher than in the suburbs, temperatures above 38 degrees are appearing mainly in the metropolitan area. As the east wind passes through the Taebaek Mountains, the high temperature and dry air heats up the western region and raises the temperature. The Korea Meteorological Administration has urged people to prepare for heat waves and torrential rains.
