The Japan Meteorological Agency forecast on the 30th that it will be affected by the severe cold current on the 31st. The severe side of the Sea of Japan may be severe snowstorm, which may affect the traffic in Hokkaido and Tohoku. Be especially careful.
From the morning of the 31st to the 1st of January, Hokkaido and Tohoku will be strictly guarded against snowstorms and waves. With the rapid development of low pressure on the front line, the cold air will flow from Hokkaido and Tohoku from the northern part of the Sea of Japan to the northeast. The maximum instantaneous wind speed on the 31st is expected to be 35 meters in Hokkaido, 30 meters in the northeast, and a wave height of 5 meters, which may cause difficulties in driving and traffic confusion in Hokkaido.
Most areas on the Pacific side cleared from 31st to January 1st, but the temperature changed greatly. Kanto and the East China Sea are warm and sunny during the day on the 31st, with the highest temperature in some areas reaching nearly 20 degrees. It started to get cold in the early morning of the 1st. People should pay attention to keep warm when going out to watch the sunrise and pray.
