The month of July has yielded periods of flooding rainfall to much of the Korean Peninsula, and more is on the way.
The combination of a slow-moving frontal boundary and tropical moisture has led to rainfall nearly every day of July across the region.
Seoul, the capital city of South Korea, has reported rainfall on all but three days of the month. Rainfall has totaled 18.83 inches so far this month, more than 200 percent of normal.
More than 20 inches of rain has been reported in Pyongyang, the North Korean capital, also more than double the monthly average.
This extended period of rain has led to flooding and mudslides that have claimed the lives of several people in South Korea.
A round of heavy rainfall earlier this week claimed the lives of seven construction works due to the raging flood waters of the Han River.
Unfortunately, more heavy rains are expected as a slow moving frontal boundary continues to shift north to south across the peninsula into early next week.
The heaviest rain fell across North Korea earlier in the week before shifting into northern South Korea later Tuesday night into Wednesday.
A brief pause in the flooding rainfall is expected on Friday, before the front presses back into North Korea on Saturday. This front will stall near the border of North and South Korean leading to rounds of heavy rainfall from Sunday through Wednesday.
The potential for locally dangerous and disruptive thunderstorms will exist over the Midwest into Wednesday evening.
Areas from Central America to southeastern Mexico, western Cuba and southern Florida will be on alert into next week as a tropical system may form.
Warmth will build and evolve into a heat wave across a significant part of the western United States this week.
Rounds of heavy thunderstorms will raise the risk of flooding across the south-central United States into Friday.
Temperatures and humidity levels will throttle back as dry air expands southward in the northeastern United States through the middle of the week.
The next round of primary elections will take place on June 7 with six states heading to the polls.

Flood disaster. Heavy rains caused overtopping of 90-foot high earthen dam Conemaugh River, 14 miles north in the mountains. The dam gave way and a torrent water roared down on the city at 50 mph. The force of the water moved a 48-ton 1 mile. Over 2,100 people died.
