It said authorities are restricting access to roads in mountainous regions that are projected to see heavy snowfall of up to 300 millimeters.
The agency lifted its heavy snow warning for Seoul, which received the largest single-day snowfall of the season on Monday after up to 55 millimeters of snow fell in the capital.
The weather agency also issued a heavy wind alert for the whole of Jeju Island and said winds across all inland areas of Korea could reach 58 kilometers per hour until midday Tuesday.
According to the Korea Airports Corporation, nearly 20 flights have been canceled or delayed due to heavy snow or winds while all passenger vessels coming in and out of Jeju Island have been canceled.
