Cloudy skies are expected for most parts of the country this weekend. But no significant cold weather is in the forecast with milder temperatures for the capital area. Daytime highs in Seoul will be about 4 degrees higher than the seasonal average tomorrow, at 5 degrees. On Sunday, the South Coast and Jeju Island can expect light snowfall.

With the rise in the readings, dust concentrations will also soar. In particular, western parts of the country will see dust levels standing in the ‘bad' category. That includes the Seoul metropolitan area, Chungcheong-do and Jeollabuk-do provinces. Fine dust concentrations will stay high for the next couple of days. The dust will reduce visibility out on the roads so please be extra cautious when driving.

Most regions will see minus figures for the morning. Seoul will start off at minus 5 degrees Celsius.

Cloudy spells will dominate for the daytime nationwide. Seoul will get up to 5 degrees. Gwangju and Daegu 10. Gyeongju 11 degrees.

Conditions will be relatively warm until the beginning of next week. Readings will hover near the seasonal average.

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