Good afternoon. Temperature-wise, we've seen some ups and downs this week, and on this Thursday we are seeing the mercury nearing seasonal norms but it's quite bearable, what we can't really bear is this toxic dust.
Despite some colder air, those of us in the central region 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 dusty conditions all day.
Afternoon highs will be a couple notches lower than yesterday hovering near the seasonal norms. Seoul at 3, Jeju topping out at 8 degrees. Sunny skies will dominate most regions.
The weather looks promising, no extreme cold snaps or precipitationbut unfortunately the fine dust will stick around. Meanwhile, rain is in store on Jeju Island this weekend.
That's Korea for you and here's the international weather for viewers around the world.
