Snowfall by the numbers across Kansas

Snowfall accumulations can vary dramatically over even a small area, but perhaps the most impressive aspect of the just-completed storm was how widespread the substantial snowfalls were.

Nashville in Kingman County reported 18 inches of snow. That’s only about 30 miles west of Wichita, where 14.2 inches fell. But Hays, where 17 inches fell, is more than 180 highway miles from Wichita in northcentral Kansas. Hill City, which logged 15, is more than 200 miles from Wichita.

Much of Kansas received more than a foot of snow. Not just most of a county or two – much of the state.

This compiled list of snowfall reports reflects the size of the storm. Keep in mind, more snow fell after some of these reports were made.

Wichita weather: Harsh cold moves in following massive snow storm

Wind chills will be below 0 on Friday in the Wichita area as the clean-up from one of the strongest snow storms to hit the city gains momentum.

Forecasters say temperatures will top out in the upper 20s under sunny skies today, with west-northwest winds occasionally touching double digits.

The snowpack and clear skies will allow temperatures to plummet into single digits overnight, with readings recovering to the low to mid-30s on Saturday. Skies will remain clear, with winds shifting to the south and remaining light.

Sunday should be warmer still, forecasters say, with temperatures climbing into the low 40s. But clouds will be moving in, bringing with them a chance for rain or snow Sunday night into Monday.
