TOKYO - Snow and sleet fell in central Tokyo on Thursday (Nov 24) - the first time in 54 years that snowfall has arrived early in the capital city, the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) said. This comes as the mercury plummeted near zero - a level rarely seen in late autumn - due to a passing cold air mass of minus 3 deg C.
