Wichita to see snow in May?

Meteorologists keep telling me they don’t expect any accumulation in the Wichita area from the winter storm barreling through the state later today.

But the National Weather Service has just posted this map on its website.

It has never snowed this late in Wichita, according to a review of records at the weather service. Wichita set a record for latest measurable snowfall on April 24, when .2 of an inch fell.

This winter – winter is still rolling in May?? – is currently tied for 5th in Wichita history with 30 inches of snow. Any measurable snow will give it sole possession of 5th place in records that date back to 1889.
