It’s Valentine’s Day, the day when women give chocolates to men in Japan. But that’s not what I’m going to talk about. This is what I see right now.
This is Shonandai Station. The rain is heavily beating on the roof of the station. It’s a downpour. It’s currently 18 degrees Celsius, which is highly unusual for winter here. Today is expected to be sunny in the afternoon, very windy, and 23 degrees.
What’s going on? Is it climate change? No, a strong low pressure system has taken root over the Sea of Japan, and it’s pulling up warm tropical air from the Taiwan region. It’ll be a beautiful afternoon.
It won’t last, though. Tomorrow, it’s expected to snow in the evening. Sudden change, isn’t it? Well, Friday’s forecast is for 19 degrees now. Up and down. It’s too springlike.
How’s your weather?
