Okinawa weather experiences a cold spell

Date Posted: 2002-03-29

A seasonally unusual cold spell has kept Okinawa in its grip since last week. Cold and windy weather, with a drizzle of rain, has taken many tourists from mainland by surprise. "This is colder than in Tokyo, where the weather is just the opposite. We even have the cherry blossoms earlier than ever," a visitor from Tokyo complained Wednesday watching the uninviting conditions outside the hotel lobby.

The wind reached 22.2 m/s Monday, and that spelled the doom for many of the flowers that had bloomed in prefectural parks. However, officials at the Okinawa Meteorological Observatory predict that the weather will warm up in the coming week.
