Good morning, those of us in the capital area had a tough morning commute as unexpected morning snow hit in the early hours with reports of traffic accidents. We are getting more accumulation than expected.

Most of snow has let up for now but should return again this evening...we are expecting traffic chaos again... so it could be unpleasant snowy Friday evening commute.

Central regions, including Seoul and surrounding areas, will see 1 to 3 centimeters of snowfall. Mountainous regions in Gangwon-do Province and easternmost islands of Dokdo and Ulleungdo could see up to 5 centimeters.

Temperature-wise, expect to see colder temperatures through the weekend, lows on Sunday could drop to as low as minus 6 degrees Celsius, dry and sunny weekend on tap.

As for this afternoon, daily highs will range from 2 to 12 degrees Celsius, Seoul getting up to 2 degrees.

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