August is the hottest month of the year with the average temperature of 20 to 26 degrees Celsius. But it is very cold in Winter esp. in January with temperatures ranging from only -5 to 5 degrees Celsius as a result of the Siberian air mass that flows to South Korea.
More than half of South Korea's annual rainfall falls in Summer. The average annual rainfall in the central region is 1,500 mm. Southern coastal regions and nearby mountains have an average rainfall of over 1,500 mm yearly. On the other hand, the northern region experiences precipitation less than 600 mm. Sometimes, the southern region experiences droughts although the annual rainfall is over 1,200mm because the amount of rainfall changes by huge amounts every time, making it difficult to deal with water.
