Hot Stuff: Snow Falls In November In Tokyo For First Time In 54 Years

TOKYO (AP) — Tokyo residents have woken up to the first November snowfall in more than 50 years.

 

An unusually cold air mass brought wet snow to Japan's capital on Thursday. Above-freezing temperatures kept the snow from sticking, but forecasters said there could be an accumulation of up to 2 centimeters (1 inch).

"First November dusting of snow," as said by resident Satoshi Furuya.

 

The last time it snowed in central Tokyo in November was in 1962.
