A former low-pressure area whose pressure pummelled over 24 hPa within a 24-hour period making it a "bomb cyclone" is seen over the seas over Russian Far Easton November 15, 2019. This cyclone is expected to bring heaps of snow to Japan today until November 16 to 17.
ASCAT imagery shows sustained winds near typhoon strength are being seen just north of Hokkaido around the Kuril Islands.
Talk about a potent storm system, a deep winter storm of 973hpa is hanging out over eastern Russia today. This is why it is rather cool across Japan and why there is sea effect snow taking place With some areas of Hokkaido expecting over 100cm of snow! pic.twitter.com/LRjSyOHZzk— Robert Speta (@RobertSpetaWX) November 14, 2019
Over 100cm of snowfall along the NW coast of Japan today and tomorrow. That along with wind gust up to 126kph equals some rather nasty conditions! Skiers and snowboards I’m sure will rejoice though. https://t.co/hxAybJhCvZ pic.twitter.com/mXp0Uc41pN— Robert Speta (@RobertSpetaWX) November 15, 2019
"Skiers and snowboards rejoice though, this will help resorts get going across northern Japan with the sea effect snow as well bringing snow for most of the resorts in Hokkaido and maybe even as far south as the mountains across Niigata and Nagano," Speta added. "Places like Kagura in Yuzawa will get a nice bit of snow."
