Fine dust spreading across Korea Updated: 2018-04-17 18:30:43 KST

Now we turn to our Michelle Park at the weather center for the latest updates. Michelle, as we head into the evening, the fine dust levels are getting worse across the country. What's the latest?

Daniel, the concentration of dust in the central region has also increased. Right now it's at a level considered "bad." And the dust that was blown out of the southern region is now coming back in because the wind has changed directions. Jeju Island is looking worst so try to stay indoors, if possible.

These high levels of dust will linger through tomorrow. But the Korea and nearby countries will get a plenty of sun tomorrow, except for some parts of Japan.

In the morning, Seoul will begin the day at 7 degrees Celsius. Daegu also begins at 7 and Gyeongju will be chillier at 5 degrees.

The temperature will climb fast, Seoul reaching up to 20 degrees, while Gwangju and Busan will be at 21 and 19 degrees.

Later this week the daily highs will be more like what we would normally see in mid-May. But with the rain on Sunday, it'll cool back down but remain on the warm side.

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