Heat wave warnings are still in effect in many regions in Korea including Seoul, Gyeonggi, Chungcheong and Jeolla provinces, but the country will see no more record-breaking temperatures for a while.

The daytime high in Seoul will rise to 34 C, Suwon 33 C, Chuncheon 33 C, Gangneung 27 C, Daejeon 35 C, Gwangju 35 C, Daegu 29 C and Busan 30 C.

The tropical nights that had continued for 26 consecutive days have gone thanks to the cold air blown from the north region.

The cooler weather is projected to persist throughout the weekend.
