Cold wave to ease but snow in forecast across central regions tonight Updated: 2021-01-12 16:11:27 KST

Let's now check back with our Lee Seungmin out in southern Seoul.
Seungmin, what are the conditions looking like now?

Well, Conn-young. Snow clouds have started to form this afternoon, starting from the west of the nation.
Already, heavy snow advisories have been issued across the greater Seoul area and surrounding regions.

We're seeing an accumulation of snowfall out on the roads, but thanks to the warm winds, temperatures have risen a touch. Daytime readings have finally returned to positive figures nationwide. Readings will continue to stay near the seasonal norms tomorrow, with Seoul reaching 7 degrees, Gwangju and Daegu 11 degrees. Relatively mild conditions will prolong through the weekend.

The greater Seoul area and Chungcheongnam-do can expect 1 to 3 centimeters. Gangwon-do, Chungcheongbuk-do and inland areas of Gyeongsangbuk-do provinces can expect 1 to 5 centimeters. Snow will let up in most regions overnight.

For tomorrow morning, Seoul and Daejeon will begin at minus 2 degrees Celsius.

Daytime highs will be about 6 to 7 degrees higher than today nationwide.

Warmer conditions are leading to an inflow of fine dust from overseas. Dust levels will have risen across most parts of the nation by tomorrow.

Snowy and slippery roads are creating poor driving conditions. Please try to take public transportations on your way home tonight.

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