Jeju has a typical humid subtropical climate greatly affected by the east asian monsoon season. Winters are by far the warmest in [[South Korea]] and the island is usually revered as an escape from the cold in the mainland. The northern part of the island (e.g [[Jeju (city)|Jeju City]]) and the interior are slightly colder than the southern part (e.g. [[Seogwipo]]) but temperatures usually range from 3°C (37°F) to 9°C (48°F). Cold waves rarely strike the island but below-freezing temperatures occur multiple times each year. The record low is -6°C (21.2°F) in Jeju City and -5.8°C (21.6°F) in Seogwipo. However, snow showers are common, due to the ocean snow effect, and Jeju City averages 19 days every year with wintry precipitation, while the south isn't as prone to such effects, as evidenced with Seogwipo that averages 11 days every year with snowfall. Summers in Jeju are hot and humid with highs typically around 30°C (86°F) and lows just below 25°C (75°F). Really hot temperatures are rare (the record high is 37°C (99°F) in Jeju City and 36°C (97°F) in Seogwipo) but the humidity may make the heat feel oppressive. Most of the precipitation falls as thunderstorms but they can be really intense. Jeju is more prone to hurricanes than any other part of South Korea and when they strike they have the potential to be powerful (although they don't very often).
