Japan to see average to warmer weather in Feb-April

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan will see average to warmer-than-average weather from February to April, the official forecaster said on Thursday.

All of Japan's regions stand a 40 percent chance of having average or warmer-than-average weather in the three months from February, the Japan Meteorological Agency said in its three-month outlook. (For details, see table below.)

A rare snowfall occurred in eastern Japan on Wednesday, dusting central Tokyo in the season's first accumulated snowfall and driving daily power demand to a seasonal record high for the fourth time this winter at Tokyo Electric Power Co, the nation's largest power utility.
