It was a chilly day today, even though temperatures were above freezing.

It's those cold winds. But it's set to get warmer towards the weekend. Let's turn to our Natalie Seok at the Weather Center for more details.

Yes, guys. It's cold but thanks to those winds, most of us, apart from those in Chungcheongbuk-do Province, had breathable air today. And tomorrow, fine dust levels will be 'normal' across the country. Also, cold wave alerts have been issued for the fourth day in parts of Gyeonggi-do and Gangwon-do Provinces.

The skies are clear, and the air is clean. But we do need to watch out for dry conditions. Especially along parts of the east coast and in the southeast.
Dry conditions increase the risk of wildfires. So, do take the necessary precautions.

Tomorrow, most of the country will be partly cloudy, while Seoul gets sunny during the day and Jeju stays cloudy.

Taking a closer look at our readings for tomorrow morning, Seoul kicks off at minus 5 degrees Celsius, Busan 0 and Jeju 4 degrees.

And the mercury rises higher than it did today. The daytime high peaks at 3 degrees in Seoul, 6 in Daegu, and 8 in Busan.

Temperatures will gradually warm up towards the end of the week, while the lows stay around freezing.

I'll leave you with the weather conditions around the world.
