In Seoul, the first snow falls on November 21, based on normal years (1981 ~ 2010), and on November 26 last year.

K Weather official said “Although the temperature has been higher than normal in recent years due to the effects of high-altitude mobility, cold weather is expected to flow over the Korean Peninsula from day 22, and the temperature will drop significantly during the night,” 

On the 23rd, the morning minimum temperature in Seoul is expected to stay at 18 degrees Celsius, which is 3 degrees lower than the previous day and the highest daytime temperature is 5 degrees lower than the previous day.
