It said levels will continue to be bad across the country except eastern Gangwon Province on Monday and Tuesday, especially in Seoul and other inland areas. In the Chungcheong provinces pollution will continue on Christmas Day.

Otherwise the weather will be fine nationwide on Christmas Eve but cloudy and rainy on Christmas Day.
