Good morning. Most parts of Korea are under a haze of toxic smog. The air quality will get worse as the day goes on The capital region is likely to have very bad air quality so have a face mask with you.

According to the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other experts, on a dusty day like today, we still need to open the windows to ventilate rooms but limit this to 10 minutes, 3 times a day between 10 AM and 6 PM and use a wet mop to clean the floor.

Temperature-wise, readings are on the mild side today, hovering way above the norms for this time of year so we won't need a thick jacket but we have freezing morning lows in store for the latter half of the week.

This afternoon, daily highs will range from 7 to 18 degrees Celsius. Another band of spotty rain will move in tonight for Seoul and its surrounding regions.

That's Korea for you and here's the international weather for viewers around the world.
