The Korea Meteorological Administration predicted that tomorrow morning temperatures nationwide will remain below zero on the last day of this year, and the wind chill temperature will be very cold as the temperature is nearly 10 degrees lower than the actual temperature.
The morning lows will range from -15 to 1 degrees Celsius ( -12 to 0 degrees Celsius as an average year) and the daytime highs from -4 to 4 degrees (one to nine degrees Celsius an average year).
The wind chill temperature in the morning will be -25 ~ -8 degrees Celsius, and the lowest temperature will be almost 10 degrees Celsius.
“Cold air from the north and strong winds will further reduce the temperature,” the KMA said. “We should pay attention to the management of facilities such as health care and the prevention of water pipes from the east.”
A cold wave watch and a cold wave warning will take effect at 10 p.m. on December 30 in most parts of the country.
