Mild weather this weekend, dusty air continues Updated: 2019-01-11 16:23:01 KST

Hello, I'm Michelle Park here with the latest weather update.
The westerly wind has warmed up the nation, but it's also brought ultra fine dust particles with it.
This toxic level of air pollution is expected to continue until tomorrow, especially here in the capital region.

Although there's a chance of rain or even snow overnight in the southern regions and on Jeju Island, the amount will be too little to relieve the pollution.
The afternoon will be sunny again, while Beijing and Tokyo will be cloudier than Seoul but similarly warm.

Seoul will kick off Saturday morning at zero degrees Celsius, while Busan and Jeju can expect higher readings while being drenched with rain.

The nation's daily highs will be between 6 and 10 degrees,. Seoul reaching 6 degrees while Daegu and Gyeongju hit 9 degrees.

Apart from the dusty conditions, it's relatively nice and comfortable weather to be outside.
But, with days without rain, the dry conditions are worsening in the country, so make sure to stay alert due to the higher risk of fire.

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