Autumn rains fall on Oct. 27. Raindrops hanging off the fruit are reminiscent of icicles. Weather forecasters predict that temperatures will drop over the weekend and that Oct. 31 will see winter-like temperatures.
The dyes of colorful seasonal foliage can be seen all across Korea, from Seoul to Busan.
People enjoy the peak of autumn over the weekend. However, as the season turns toward winter it will leave people wishing they were able to enjoy autumn more.
The rain continued through the night and into the morning commute on Oct. 27. By lunchtime, however, the dark clouds had gone and autumn sunshine had returned. A bleak autumnal wind had people wearing thick jackets, however. Forecasters predict that after the rains stop on Oct. 27, temperatures will drop. Lows over the weekend on Oct. 31 are predicted to be hovering around 3 degrees Celsius.
