#5 – and climbing?

This storm now ranks among the five worst in Wichita history, according to the National Weather Service.

The official snowfall at the agency’s office in west Wichita was 12.5 inches early Thursday afternoon, supplanting a 1909 storm as the fifth-worst in the city’s history.

But snow is still falling, and it would only take another .04 of an inch to lift this storm event into the top three.

Stay tuned.
