Record early snowfall in Japan

Snow removal equipment dispatched 18 days earlier than last year.

7 Nov 2016 – Hokkaido morning edition: Record early November snowfall in central Sapporo of 23 centimeters.

The snow is heavy in many places.

According to the Sapporo District Meteorological Observatory, it was most snowfall this early in November since observations began in 1953.

  1. The Weather Channel made mention this morning (Tuesday, 8/11/2016) about the heavy snow in Sapporo, before immediately switching to the dearth of cold and snow here in the U.S. I would have liked for them to discuss a little more about all of the northern hemisphere snow cover currently in place, and what that portends for later in the winter here in the U.S. and across Europe.

    Wishful thinking . . .
