A very rainy summer = winter implications?

Recommended Posts

Yes it was a bit all over last year.

I remember (I think correctly) February being generally rubbish in terms of fresh snow.

Hokkaido news just reported that winter will come early this year, with some heavier than usual falls in November. With heavy snow continuing in December......I hope they are correct :D

Well they are forecasting cooler than average for the northern parts of Japan over the coming few months. A bit warmer down south.

Well that's good news, JMA must have updated - I looked at this last week and their prediction was generally for things on the warmer side - still it's hard to put too much faith in a 3 month forecast based on averages, a few cold weeks early on and some subsequent warmer spells can spoil disaster for us short term trippers....

I want to know specifically if there will be massive dumps with low wind when I am there in the first couple of weeks in February....

 

Where is that reputable clairvoyant when I need him /her ????
