Poor air quality across the nation... inland regions to see light rain tomorrow Updated: 2021-01-14 15:42:19 KST

Air quality across the greater Seoul area has improved temporarily, but dust levels will soar again overnight.
Let's turn to our Lee Seung-min at the Weather Center.
Seung-min, we do have some light showers in store, but this won't be enough to wash away the fine dust?

Well, Conn-young. The weather has gotten a touch warmer, but we’re seeing poor air quality across the nation. Air quality has briefly improved for parts of central regions tonight, but fine dust levels will rise to 'bad’ levels nationwide tomorrow.

Light rain is in store for inland regions, including the greater Seoul area, tomorrow. The amount of rain won't be sufficient enough to clear the high concentrations of fine dust. But the cold, gusty winds that follow the rain will do so.

Morning tomorrow will be about 4 to 5 degrees warmer than today. Seoul will begin at 1 degree Celsius.

Showers will have spread across to more inland areas by the daytime. Seoul will reach 9 degrees Celsius. Gwangju, Daegu and Busan at 15 degrees.

After the rain lets up, another cold front will arrive on Saturday, bringing lows back down to below zero.

During this time of the year when the temperature frequently changes, the risk of viral transmission is greater with our immune system getting weaker. Please take extra care of your health at this time.

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