Record sea-effect snow in northern Japan

A potent storm system is moving over the Sea of Japan bringing heavy sea-effect snow to parts of Japan, and in some areas breaking all-time 24-hour snowfall records.

Shumarinai recorded 77 cm (30 inches) of snow over the past 24 hours, setting its new all-time 24-hour snowfall record. Meanwhile, Nayoro registered 60 cm (24 inches), setting its new 24-hour snowfall record for the month of November.

Snow is expected to continue falling through the end of the week.
