Short summary
An extreme rainfall-producing mesoscale convective system (MCS) associated with the Changma front in south-eastern South Korea was investigated using observational data. The aim of the present study is to analyze and better understand the synoptic and mesoscale environment and the behaviour of the MCS causing natural hazards over South Korea.
