Occasional blizzards

There was clear sky in the early morning, but it did not last long.
Large snowflakes began falling suddenly and the wind has picked up, creating temporary blizzard conditions.
The wind has calmed somewhat at the present time, but the snow continues to fall heavily. Some 10 cm have accumulated outside the center.
The weather report predicts clearing later. However, the snow cover could remain as the temperature will stay low.
Photos: Even the trees are covered with snow (the river is the Ishikari River). Snow is spraying in the air due to the strong wind. (November 13)
