Kanto-Koshin is expected to experience heavy snowfall mainly along the mountains from the 10th to the 11th due to the cold air in the sky and the effect of the “southern coast low pressure”. Snow is expected to accumulate even in flat areas such as the 23 wards of Tokyo, where snowfall is usually low.

According to the Japan Meteorological Agency, from the 10th to the 11th, a low pressure system is expected to develop and move east along the southern coast of Honshu, and cold air is expected to flow over Kanto Koshin.

For this reason, Kanto-Koshin is expected to have a wide range of snow from the morning of the 10th, and heavy snowfall is expected along the mountains until around dawn on the 11th.

In addition, snowfall is expected even in flat areas such as the 23 wards of Tokyo, where snowfall is usually low.

The amount of snow falling in the 24 hours from noon on the 10th to noon on the 11th is
▽ 20 cm to 40 cm in the Koshin region and the Kanto region
▽ 10 cm to 20 cm in southern Kanto
▽ 1 cm to 5 cm even in the 23 wards of Tokyo
is expected.

The Japan Meteorological Agency is calling for attention to the impact on traffic due to heavy snow and frozen roads, as well as power outages due to snow accumulation.

Make preparations on the 9th, check the latest weather and traffic information on the 10th, and try to act with plenty of time to spare.
