Strong wind alerts issued nationwide... temperatures to plummet tomorrow morning Updated: 2021-01-28 16:11:13 KST

While snow has tapered off in some regions, strong gusts of wind will continue through tomorrow.
Let's turn to our Lee Seung-min at the Weather Center.
Seung-min, tomorrow will be a whole lot colder?

Well, Conn-young. As of right now, snow has eased off for most of the capital area, but the rest of the country will continue to see snowfall through tomorrow morning. The east of Jeolla-do province and mountainous regions of Jeju Island will see up to 15 centimeters. Parts of Gangwon-do and Chungcheongbuk-do provinces will see 3 to 10 centimeters. And elsewhere regions have up to 5 centimeters in the forecast.

Along with the snow, typhoon-like wind gusts are sweeping across the nation. Strong wind advisories have been issued nationwide. Inland regions including the capital will see gusts of up to 20 meters per second. Winds this powerful can easily blow tree limbs and unsecured objects.

Strong winds will also pull down temperatures significantly. Lows in Seoul will start off at minus 12 degrees Celsius.

Daytime highs in Seoul will reach minus 4 degrees. Gwangju and Daegu 1 degree.

As the nation has been under mild conditions for the past few days, the weather will feel much colder than the actual readings tomorrow.

Wet surfaces from melting snow will refreeze overnight due to the drastic drop in temperatures. So use caution and watch out for black ice during your morning commute.

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