Strong cold air is moving in, and there is a risk of snowfall of 10 cm or more over the plains of Kyushu through tomorrow. Temperatures will also drop below freezing during the day, making it a different world when it is time to return home. Please be on the lookout for snow accumulation, blizzard conditions, and icy conditions affecting transportation systems. There is a high possibility of heavy snowfall over a wide area of Kyushu from noon today to tomorrow. The amount of snowfall in the next 24 hours is expected to be 30 cm along the mountains of Fukuoka and Oita prefectures, 25 cm along the mountains of Saga, Nagasaki, and Kumamoto prefectures, and 20 cm along the mountains of Kagoshima prefecture. The temperature in Fukuoka City at 5:00 a.m. was 6 degrees Celsius, but the forecast at 9:00 a.m. is 3 degrees Celsius, and by noon it will be 0 degrees Celsius, dropping to minus 2 degrees Celsius by 3:00 p.m. By evening, temperatures are expected to drop below freezing in almost all areas of Kyushu. It will be a different world when you return home, and even in the plains, there is a risk of snow accumulation, blizzards, and icy roads, which will significantly impact transportation. Please only go out as much as possible today. It is especially dangerous to go out in a car with normal tires. If you cannot avoid going out, please take measures to avoid difficulty in returning home after this afternoon. Source: NHK and KBC
