Wide gaps in readings under clear skies, rain on east coast

Now let's go over to our weathercaster Lee Jee-hyun who's at World Cup Park. Jee-hyun, I have no doubt that it's the most beautiful time of the year here in Korea, but also a time where you really have to make a decision over what to wear. I'm seeing people wearing light and heavier jackets these days.
Good morning. Roller coaster temperatures for sure, but I can tell you there won't be any dramatic weather changes in the next 10 days. Actually it's getting warmer now under sunny skies, my thick jacket was making me very warm so I had to take it off… Hope you are enjoying the brilliant view of World Cup Park filled with silver grass we are presenting this morning, but soon the capital region will be painted with orange, gold and brown. Let's talk more about today's weather conditions.
Low single digits to start the day, Paju in Gyeonggi-do Province was just above freezing mark, but by the afternoon, it will hike up to the mid-teens leading to big gaps under plenty of blue skies for most areas.
But rain clouds are moving towards the east coast so if you are in that area you will need rain gear.
5 to 30 millimeters of precipitation is in store. The amount of rain won't be much but rain could linger into tomorrow along with thunder and lightning.
Highs will be similar to yesterday, Seoul at 16 degrees, Daegu at 18 degrees Celsius this afternoon.
We can expect fine late autumn weather this weekend but wide gaps between lows and highs will continue so bear that in mind.
The air is getting dry so if you plan to go hiking to enjoy the autumn colors be careful with anything than can cause a fire. That's all for now. I will be back in our later news cast.
