A stalled front and waves of low pressure will bring a continued threat for flooding to the Korean Peninsula into next week.
South Korea's largest city, Seoul, which is the second largest city in the world, will likely not get this heavy rain this weekend as it will slide by to their south. However, the area did pick up more than an inch of rain Thursday into Thursday night.
Provinces that will be affected will be Chollanam-Do, Kyongsangnam-Do, Kyongsanfbuk-Do and Collabuk-Do.
A widespread rainfall of 4-8 inches fell from Thursday into Friday across the southern half of South Korea. Some of the hardest hit areas include Geochang, Daegu, Jeongeup, Gwangju, Gochang and Pohang.
In this highly urbanized country, the main threat flooding threats are for low-lying and urban areas. However, there are hills and mountains, and river and stream flooding as well as mudslides will be possible, especially since many of these areas have received heavy rains recently.
Widespread daily rainfall of 1-3 inches with localized 3-6 inches will fall across many areas of the central and southern part of the peninsula through Sunday.
The threat for flooding rainfall will shift into northern South Korea and North Korea during the first half of next week.
