Wichita sets record for snowiest month in city’s history

The two potent snow storms in less than a week have combined to give Wichita its snowiest month ever, weather officials say.

The 21 inches of snow this month is the most to fall in any month – not just February, National Weather Service meteorologist Jerilyn Billings said.

The snowfall breaks a record that’s exactly 100 years old: 20.5 inches in February 1913.

The official snowfall total from last week’s storm, 14.2 inches, is the second-most from any snow event in Wichita.
