Good morning. Those of us in the central part of the country will need a face mask today. We are dealing with high levels of ultrafine dust, The Chungcheongbuk-do and Gyeonggi-do Provinces are forecast to suffer from polluted air dust all day.

Moving onto today's readings, lows have dropped a few notches but it's not as cold as we expected yesterday. Right now the thermometer is pointing at about minus 2 degree Celsius in Seoul and it could get a bit colder so dress warmly. Sunny skies will dominate most regions.

Afternoon highs will be couple notches lower than yesterday as well, hovering near the seasonal norms. Seoul at 3, Jeju topping out at 8 degrees.

The weather looks promising, no extreme cold snaps or precipitationbut unfortunately the fine dust will stick around.

That's Korea for you and here's the international weather for viewers around the world.
