ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION Northern Japan was hit by one of the heaviest snowfall and most severe cold fronts in the past few years on Friday (January 13). A 61-year old woman was found dead under a pile of snow in front of her home in Yamagata prefecture on Thursday (January 12) night, local media reported.

The wintry weather is likely to even spread to the capital Tokyo. Temperatures there will hit sub-zero levels, the agency added.
