Temperatures will rise to 21 to 24 C in the afternoon, slightly higher than Monday’s daytime temperatures.

The big daily temperature range will continue on Wednesday as well.

As strong winds are set to hit coastal areas and Jeju Island throughout the day, the Korea Meteorological Administration warned residents of possible damage.

The weather on Wednesday is forecast to be clear and chilly, with daytime lows of 5 to 15 C and highs of 22 to 25 C.
