Siberian shivers in October


Elementary school students in winter coats hurry to school in Daejeon in the morning on Oct. 26. The first frost and ice this season were officially observed in Seoul, the central mountain regions and some inland areas. “It was the first time in seven years that ice has been spotted in October in Seoul since [Oct. 29,] 2003,” said the Korea Meteorological Administration. A high-pressure system from Siberia is blamed for the frigid weather. By Kim Seong-tae

10월26일 아침 대전에서 겨울 옷을 껴입은 초등학교 학생들이 서둘러 등교하고 있다. 올가을 들어 첫 서리와 얼음이 서울과 내륙 산간지역에서 공식 관측됐다. 기상청은 “2003년 10월29일 이후 7년 만에 처음으로 서울에서 10월에 얼음이 관측됐다”고 발표했다. 시베리아 고기압이 한파의 원인이다. 김성태 기자
