Very chilly Friday


Workers shovel snow from Gwanghwamun Plaza in central Seoul yesterday as heavy snowfall hit nationwide. Seoul was blanketed in 4.4 centimeters (1.7 inches) of snow yesterday as of 5 p.m., prompting the Korea Meteorological Administration to issue a heavy snow advisory at 3 p.m., which was lifted two hours later. The weather agency forecast that Seoul would have its coldest morning of winter so far today, with temperatures dropping to minus 7 degrees Celsius (19.4 degrees Fahrenheit). Seoul’s mercury will go up to minus 2 degrees Celsius at noon but will not climb higher today, while Jeju Island is expected to have warmish weather; its mercury will reach 8 degrees Celsius. The country’s central region will record temperatures ranging between minus 13 degrees and 2 degrees Celsius this morning, and the Gangwon and Chungcheong regions are forecast to have up to seven centimeters of snow today.
