Good afternoon. South Korea has been trapped under high to very high levels of ultrafine dust, the level in the capital region is 3 times higher than normal level with no relief in the forecast today. Try to stay indoors, and wash hands even more frequently.
But we can expect relief along with much colder air that looks to move in tomorrow. Freezing air will push away the dust in the air.
What's more, snow is in the forecast from tonight in the west. Along the west coast, it could snow up to 5 centimeters while mountainous regions on Jeju, Ullengdo-and Dokdo could see more than 30 centimeters.
Daytime highs in central regions will be lower, while southern provinces will have higher highs. A dry advisory for Busan and Ulsan remains in place.
Dusty weather to start off the week then it will be bone chilling throughout the week, with wintry precipitation in store on Thursday.
With that, here's a look at the weather conditions around the world.
