This winter appears set to stay among 10 winters with least snow in Wichita

With weather patterns suggesting winter has waved the white flag in Kansas, we can take a closer look at where this winter ranks in delivering the white stuff to Wichita.

Or, more to the point, not delivering snow.

Just 3 inches of snow fell this winter in Wichita, tying 2011-12 with 1920-21 for 7th on the list of lowest snowfall totals in Wichita history.

Here’s the list, compiled by the National Weather Service:

1) 0.7 Inch 1922-23
2) 0.8 Inch 1903-04
3) 1.3 Inches 1993-94
4) 1.8 Inches 1991-92
5) 2.0 Inches 1907-08
6) 2.9 Inches 1891-92
7) 3.0 Inches 1920-21 & 2011-12
9) 3.1 Inches 1908-81
10) 3.8 Inches 1895-1896

Accumulating snow has been recorded in Wichita into April, so forecasters aren’t eager to shut the door just yet. But computer models aren’t suggesting a return to wintry weather any time soon.
