Many parts of South Korea, including the Seoul metropolitan area, had a frosty Autumn day overall today. Morning temperatures plummeted to single figures again. Expect similar conditions for tomorrow. While Seoul will see a gap of 9 degrees Celsius, other inland regions will see a bigger difference. Daegwallyeong in Gangwon-do Province will see minus figures tomorrow, with a gap of 13 degrees.

Meanwhile, we're only a day away from the launch of "Nuri," South Korea's homegrown space rocket. Weather conditions look moderate for Goheung in Jeollanam-do Province, where the Naro Space Center is located. Winds will be gusting up to 3 to 9 meters per second, with daily highs of 18 degrees Celsius tomorrow. Chances of rain range from zero to 20 percent. Let's all hope for a successful launch.

The morning tomorrow in Seoul and Gyeongju will start off at 5 degrees Celsius.

Daytime highs will rise quickly. Seoul will get up to 14 degrees. Gyeongju and Jeju 18. Gwangju 16 degrees.

For the remainder of the week, the capital region will see mild sunshine with temperatures cooler than the seasonal average.

That's all for now, and here are the weather conditions around the world.
