Before we continue with the rest of the day's news, let's get a check on the weather, getting out of the studio this morning, is our weathercaster Lee Jeehyun, who is at World Cup Park in western Seoul.
Jeehyun, it feels like it jumped straight from summer to winter, skipping autumn entirely.
Just a couple of weeks ago we were seeing days with highs nearing 30 degrees Celsius, but now it's unseasonably cold. What's going on?
Good morning. Well, many weather experts are saying that global warming is affecting weather patterns.
Melting ice in the Arctic is causing colder air to move southwards.
With that said, this year's winter is forecast to be colder than average years.
This also applies to our neighboring countries as well.
We need to well prepare for some harsh winter days ahead.
