On the 5th and 6th, the weekend, the temperature is expected to reach a maximum of 37 degrees. As Typhoon No. 6 ‘Kanun’ slowed down, the possibility of heading to the Korean Peninsula increased.
The Korea Meteorological Administration predicted on the 4th, “The minimum temperature on the morning of the 5th will be 23-28 degrees, the maximum temperature during the day will be 32-37 degrees, the minimum temperature on the morning of the 6th will be 24-27 degrees, and the maximum temperature during the day will be 30-36 degrees.”
Weekend temperatures could exceed the weather forecast for the day. According to the forecast of the same time the previous day by the Korea Meteorological Administration, the highest daytime temperature on the 4th and 5th was predicted to be up to 36 degrees, but in fact, 37 degrees were recorded in various places. The Korea Meteorological Administration explained in a briefing on the 3rd that “the forecast accuracy increases as the forecast time approaches.”
On the 4th, tropical nights appeared in large cities and coastal areas. In particular, Gangneung showed a ‘supertropical night’ with a daily minimum temperature of 30.7 degrees Celsius. A tropical night refers to a time when the maximum temperature from 6:00 pm to 9:00 am of the next day is 25 degrees or higher, and a supertropical night is 30 degrees or higher.
Showers will also fall across the country. On the 5th, there will be showers in Jeju, the southern mountains of Gangwon, the interior of southern Chungcheong, the Jeolla region, the Gyeongbuk region, and the interior of Gyeongnam. On the 6th, there will be showers in Jeju, Gyeonggi inland, Gangwon inland, Chungcheong inland, Jeolla region, and Gyeongsang region inland. Precipitation due to showers will be up to 60 mm.
Typhoon Kanun No. 6 is expected to turn around on the 7th메이저사이트 and start heading north. The possibility of heading to the Korean Peninsula is gradually increasing.
According to the typhoon information issued by the Korea Meteorological Administration at 4:00 pm on the 4th, ‘Kanun’ is moving northeast and east at a speed of 10 km per hour in the sea around 290 km northwest of Okinawa, Japan as of 3:00 pm on the same day. The central air pressure is 970hPa, and the maximum wind speed is 126km/h, so it is a ‘strong’ class typhoon that can derail trains.
Kanun starts heading north from the 7th, and the timing of the change of direction depends on the speed of movement. The slower the speed, the more likely it is to head for the Korean Peninsula. Currently, the 70% probability radius in which Kanun can move includes the Korean Peninsula.
Comparing typhoon information at 4:00 am, 10:00 am, and 4:00 pm on this day, the Korea Meteorological Administration analyzes that it is highly likely that Kanun will gradually head toward the Korean Peninsula. As of 4:00 p.m. on this day, the possibility of the east coast entering the strong wind radius of Kanun increased. The sea surface temperature in the East Sea is about 3 degrees higher than normal, which is a good condition for Kanun to maintain its scale.
Kanun is expected to maintain its ‘strong’ level of power until the 9th, with a central air pressure of 970hPa and a maximum wind speed of 126km/h. The Korea Meteorological Administration predicted that it would be possible to predict the route more accurately
on the 5th, when the Kanun route bends once more, and on the 7th and 8th when it bends again.
