Pyongyang, June 28 (KCNA) — The rainy season has set in in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea from June 26 afternoon.
Jong Ryong U, vice chief of the National Meteorological Institute under the Hydro-Meteorological Service, told KCNA that the year’s rainy season has begun more than one week earlier than the normal year.
He went on to say: The feature of this rainy weather, which is likely to last for two months, is conspicuous from the beginning.
It had been difficult to distinguish the rainy season from dry season in recent years. From last year the start and end of the rainy season have become obvious again.
It is expected that there would be a heavy fall of rain coupled with strong wind and flood during the current rainy season.
This rainy weather will seriously affect the yield of first crops such as wheat and barley, the growth of which has been delayed owing to unfavorable climate, he added.
