After the typhoon, Jeju heat wave rises again… Expect a peak of 33 degrees during the day
The 11th, completely free from the influence of the 5th typhoon ‘Rose’, Jeju is hot and there are places where it will rain around the mountains.
The Jeju Regional Meteorological Administration predicted that it would rain mainly in the mountainous regions and mountainous areas in southeastern Jeju, and that there would be places where raindrops fall in other areas.
The expected precipitation is 5 to 40 mm.
The lowest temperature in the morning is expected to be 26 to 27 degrees Celsius, and the highest temperature in the daytime is expected to be 29 to 33 degrees Celsius.
The Meteorological Administration canceled the storm warning that was issued off the coast of Jeju Island at 6 am.
An official from the Meteorological Agency said, “There may be places where the minimum temperature is maintained above 25 degrees Celsius until 9 am on this day, so that tropical nights appear overnight, and the heatwave warning will be in effect at 11 am as the daytime temperature rises.” He said, “We must take special care so that there is no damage.”
“In the far sea south of Jeju Island, the wind blows strongly at 10 to 16 m per second, and the waves will be high at 2 to 4 m, so you should be careful about sailing or operating vessels.”

No damage from the typhoon that first affected Jeju
The 5th typhoon ‘Rose’ and first to directly affect Jeju in 2020, passed without much problem due to weak power.
The Jeju Regional Meteorological Administration canceled the typhoon advisory that had been issued across Jeju Island at 1 pm on the 10th.
This typhoon did not leave any scars in Jeju because the wind strength was relatively weak and the precipitation was low.
From the previous day to 11 am on the day, the amount of precipitation by each area was 112mm for Hallasan Samgakbong, 102.5mm for Witsae Oreum, 59.5mm for Seongsan-Susan, 48.8mm for Seongsan, 34.5mm for Seonheul, and 31.5mm for Sinrye.
Even at 12 noon on this day when the typhoon approached, the wind stopped blowing at 1 to 5 meters per second throughout the province.
According to the Safety Headquarters, it was found that there was no report of damage.
However, as the typhoon warning went into effect, the sky and sea roads were disrupted.
Due to the typhoon invasion, 43 domestic flights (departure 22, arrival 21) to and from Jeju Airport as of 6 pm on the same day were canceled.
The operation of 15 passenger ships on nine routes between Jeju and other regions was also controlled at sea.
The Meteorological Administration said, “Typhoon itself was weak as predicted,” and said, “Because the typhoon rotates counterclockwise, Jeju, which is located on the left, is relatively less affected by the wind.”
The Meteorological Administration was free from the influence of the typhoon, but predicted that 30 to 80 mm of rain will be coming from the mountains and the south of Jeju Island by the 11th.
The heat wave is expected to continue, and the heatwave warning has been in effect in the northern, eastern, and western regions of Jeju Island at 11 am on the 11th.
