Beware of acid snow
Let's go over to our Kim Bo-gyung at the weather center for an update. Bo-gyung, we got off to a snowy and dark start to the week here in Seoul. How are things looking now?

Well, Yeon-ji. Please be sure to have an umbrella with you, as the snow that's falling in the central regions right now is acid snow, which is a mixture of snow and yellow dust.

How bad is it?

Well Daniel, currently some parts of the central regions are seeing about five times the normal levels of fine dust.

The central regions and the mountains of Jeju may see up to 5 centimeters of snow. This round of precipitation should mostly come to a stop by tomorrow morning. However, the snow will pile up in the meantime, so if possible, it is recommended that you use public transportation tomorrow morning.

Taking a look at tomorrow's numbers. Seoul starts off the day at minus-7 degrees, with a high of 0. Meanwhile Gwangju and Busan hit 1 and 5 degrees, respectively.

Moving on to other regions. Jeju and Dokdo peak at 3 degrees, while Mt. Geumgang makes it to minus-4.

Be careful on the roads. Back to you guys
