      The Japanese capital has experienced its first winter without snow for
      131 years, weather officials say. The Japan Meteorological Agency said
      it had recorded no snow in central Tokyo between December and the end
      of February, the official winter months.

      This the first time no snow has fallen in winter since records began in
      1876, the agency said.

      Officials said the winter had been unusually warm, but added that snow
      could still fall in the coming weeks

        Thank you for posting yet another example of real world measurement
        matching the long term predictions of pioneering weather scientists
        from the 1960s.

        Clearly the Earth is experiencing a long term warming trend (decades)
        that has been detected by multiple government/university/private
        sponsored instruments install world-wide.
