The rainy season front that devastated Japan is coming up… “The real rainy season starts now”

As the atmosphere on the Korean Peninsula became unstable, it rained heavily across the country on the 11th. Heavy rain warnings were issued in the metropolitan area, inland Gangwon, and some areas and southern parts of Chungcheongnam-do. In Guro-gu, Seoul, a typhoon-level heavy rain of more than 70 mm per hour poured out, and the Korea Meteorological Administration sent an extreme heavy rain disaster text message ( CBS ) to Guro-gu, Dongjak-gu, and Yeongdeungpo-gu around 4:00 pm.

In the southern part of Gyeonggi Province, where heavy rains of up to 60 mm per hour fell, human casualties also occurred. A man in his 70s who was walking along the riverside in Yeoju City was found dead after being washed away by the river. In Yeoju, 59.5mm of rain per hour fell in an instant. According to the Korea Meteorological Administration, from midnight to 2 pm on the 11th, 68 mm of rain fell in Icheon, 64.5 mm in Yeoju, 62.5 mm in Seongnam, 55.5 mm in Anseong, and 52.5 mm in Uiwang.

The Korea Meteorological Administration said, “Very strong rain of 70 mm or more per hour is expected in Seoul and the metropolitan area by this night, and very heavy rain with a cumulative precipitation of up to 180 mm or more is expected by the 12th.” did.

The rain clouds were created when a low pressure system located in the northern part of the Korean Peninsula introduced cold, dry air and made the atmosphere unstable스포츠토토. Here, the edge of the Tibetan high pressure located in the west of the Korean Peninsula stretches over the Korean Peninsula, further intensifying atmospheric instability. This is because an air pressure trough was formed along the edge of the Tibetan high pressure to spray rain.

The Korea Meteorological Administration predicts that by the night of the 11th, very strong rain of 70 mm or more per hour will fall in Seoul and the metropolitan area, and there will be very heavy rain with a total cumulative precipitation of up to 150 mm or more by the 12th. In the central region and Jeolla, northern Gyeongbuk inland and Gyeongnam coast, there are places where there is very strong rain of 30 to 80 mm per hour accompanied by gusts, thunder and lightning until the morning of the 12th, so be careful.

The Korea Meteorological Administration predicts that the rainy season will begin in earnest from the 13th. This is because as the North Pacific high pressure expands, the rainy season front currently staying over Japan rises to the Korean Peninsula around the 13th. In addition, the Tibetan high pressure approaching from the west of the Korean Peninsula is expected to cover the Korean Peninsula on the same day, and the two giant air masses will meet to form a strong rainy season front. The nature of the rain, which has so far been pouring sporadically and briefly, is also expected to change. Woo Jin-gyu, notification officer of the Korea Meteorological Administration, explained, “Until now, the rain has been characterized by short and heavy rainfall in some areas, but since the 13th, a large amount of rain will fall for a long time in areas where the rainy season front is located.”

Currently, the rainy season front is staying in Japan and causing rain damage. On the 10th, the most heavy rain ever fell in southwestern Japan, killing at least 5 people and leaving 3 missing (as of the 10th). The Japan Meteorological Agency issued the highest level of heavy rain warning for Fukuoka and Oita prefectures for the first time this year. According to Kyodo News, the Japan Meteorological Agency announced that the amount of precipitation in Kurume City, southern Fukuoka Prefecture, exceeded 402.5 mm in 24 hours, a record high.The Japan Meteorological Agency also predicts that the rainy season front will affect Japan until the 12th. The Korea Meteorological Administration also predicted in its mid-term forecast that a rainy season front would penetrate Gyeongsang-do from the metropolitan area at 9 am on the 13th, affecting most areas across the country. “The rainy season front is expected to enter the sky over the Korean Peninsula after the night of the 12th and move up and down, spraying a lot of rain,” said Kim Seong-mook, head of the forecast policy department at the Korea Meteorological Administration.
