Light snowfall is on the cards for tonight. For the Seoul metropolitan area and the surrounding regions, only light snowflakes of less than 1 centimeter are in the forecast. But roads may refreeze overnight, so be extra careful when driving tomorrow. These light snowflakes won't be enough to alleviate the dry conditions. For eastern regions and the capital area, dry weather advisories have been issued.

Temperatures are forecast to plummet even more overnight. As of 9pm tonight, cold wave alerts will be expanded to more inland regions. In fact, warnings have been issued for northern central regions. Places like Paju in Gyeonggi-do Province will see lows at minus 15 degrees tomorrow.

Frigid wind chills will make temperatures feel colder than the actual readings. Seoul will start off at minus 10 degrees.

Daytime highs will be 1 to 3 degrees lower than today. Seoul will reach minus 1 degree. Gwangju and Gyeongju 4 degrees. Busan 5 degrees.

Frigid conditions will continue for the time being. Until Friday, lows in the capital will hover near minus 7 to 8 degrees.

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