Temperatures in Japan rise to unseasonably high

Japan experienced record-breaking warm temperatures on Monday as warm air flowed in from the south, leading to daytime highs that set records for February in northern parts of the country, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA). Hokkaido’s Mombetsu City recorded a temperature of 17.1 degrees Celsius, matching levels typically seen in late June. This temperature was 18.8 degrees higher than the average for this time of year and surpassed the previous 1960 record of 12.6 degrees. Other locations, including Akita City, Kanazawa City, and central Tokyo, also reported unusually high temperatures. The JMA expects the unseasonably warm weather to continue, with forecasts predicting daytime highs of 24 degrees in Shizuoka City and 22 degrees in central Tokyo. Officials have cautioned about potential flooding, snowmelt, and other weather-related hazards in response to the unusual conditions.
