Moderate 'Usu' day, Thursday to be clear but air pollution rises in some central areas Updated: 2020-02-19 16:20:41 KST

So, according to Korea's traditional calendar, the year is divided into 24 parts and today marks the second division known as Usu.

Right. Apparently, it's when the snow begins to melt and the warm spring breeze welcomes flower buds. Why don't we go over to Natalie Seok to find out more. Natalie, so we're expecting warmer weather?

Yes, it is fitting, as 'Usu' means the melting of snow, and it's getting warmer. We can expect it to stay warm into Friday. However, after it rains from Friday night to Saturday morning across the country, temperatures will drop slightly over the weekend.

We're going to see concentrations of fine and ultrafine particles in the air rise to unhealthy levels in the south of Gyeonggi-do Province, Sejong and Chungcheongbuk-do Province. But in other regions, concentrations will be 'normal.'

And the air is getting drier along the east coast, in Daegu, Busan and Ulsan, where dry weather advisories are in force. So, do take the necessary precautions to prevent fire if you're in these areas.

The lows will drop tomorrow morning. But Seoul will have a bright and clear start to the day at 1 degree Celsius Chuncheon minus 2 and Jeju 7.

We'll have plenty of sunshine in the afternoon with highs in the low-to-mid teens. Seoul will reach 10 degrees, Daegu 14, and Gyeongju and Busan 15.

Temperatures in Tokyo will also hit the low teens, while Beijing's high stays in the single figures.

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