Residents of South Korea woke up to rainy weather Thursday morning, as the scattered rainfall over southern parts of the country expanded nationwide overnight.

The rain will cease in the afternoon beginning from the southern regions but is expected to resume Friday morning.

According to the Korea Meteorological Administration, most regions nationwide will receive less than 5 millimeters of rain throughout Thursday. On Friday, however, about 60 mm of rain will pour down over the central part and southern coastal areas of Korea.

The weather on Paekdusan, where the leaders of South and North Korea are set to visit, will be sunny in the morning but will get gradually cloudy in the afternoon.
