Rainy season has officially begun

Filed under: climate — extrakorea @ 1:17 am

In case you didn’t know, rainy season, or summer monsoon season (“jangma” in Korean), officially began two days ago (though you wouldn’t know it from the wonderful weather of the last two days). Actually, the Korea Meteorological Administration has more-or-less given up trying to predict the beginning and end of the rainy season. When it does start, though, it can rain for several days straight, and rain is not foreshadowed by clouds or dark skies. Even if it’s a sunny day with a blue sky, take an umbrella anyway. The rainy season typically starts at Jeju Island and the moves it way up the peninsula. Right now, I’m looking at a weather forecast that predicts sunny weather on Jeju until June 27th, when it’s supposed to start raining continuously.
