Good morning. Those of us in the central part of the country and Daegu will need a face mask today. The most harmful kind of ultrafine dust particles continue to float through the air so check dust levels before heading out.
It's a colder morning than yesterday but lighter winds, afternoon highs will also be a couple notches higher today, hovering above the seasonal norms.
Sub-zero lows to start the day in most regions under lots of sunshine. Daejeon, Daegu and Gyeongju beginning the day at minus 3 degrees Celsius.
Afternoon highs will be a couple notches higher than yesterday, Seoul, Chuncheon at 4 degrees. Jeju and Gyeongju at 10 degrees.
We'll be battling air pollution tomorrow as well so those of you planning to spend some time outdoors this weekend will need to monitor the levels. Jeju will see rain throughout the weekend.
That's Korea for you and here's the international weather for viewers around the world.
