Current heat wave for the city expected to last until second week of August
A heat warning for the city of Busan was issued at 11 am yesterday, in what is expected to be the first in a prolonged heat wave for the city.
A heatwave warning comes into effect when the maximum daytime temperature of 33 degrees Celsius is expected to last more than two days.
After the Changma season officially ended over the weekend, temperatures are expected to be hot with no precipitation in sight.
The Korea Meteorological Administration estimates that the high temperatures in Busan will continue to be hotter than 30 degrees for the time being.
An official from the Korea Meteorological Administration said, “If you look at the weather forecast until the 8th of next month, it will be hot weather without rain.”
Temperatures are expected to be in the mid-30’C range with high humidity. Tropical nights are also expected where the temperatures do not fall under 25’C.
Authorities caution people to refrain from going outdoors in the afternoon to avoid heat-stroke and other heat-related illnesses including dehydration and to drink plenty of fluid.
It also advised people to take good care of agricultural and marine products as high temperatures can damage living livestock and plants.
