Heavy snow is expected in some parts of the Kanto region from early Thursday through Friday morning due to a low pressure system south of the Pacific coast that is moving east, the Meteorological Agency said Wednesday, forecasting possible accumulation in Tokyo’s 23 wards.

The agency said there is a possibility of a snow warning if temperatures drop further than expected and warned of traffic hazards on icy roads, as even a light snowfall could disrupt transportation networks and cause accidents in areas not accustomed to snow.
