It won’t be a white Christmas in Wichita this year – but then, that’s hardly unusual.
Wichita has a white Christmas only about 10 percent of the time, according to research by the National Weather Service. Last year was one of those times. In fact, the four inches of snow on the ground in 2007 tied the record for snowiest Christmas in Wichita history, first set in 1894.
There have only been 13 white Christmases in the city since records began being kept about 120 years ago.
