Kansas City missed there earliest MEASURABLE SNOWFALL by three days!

Wichita blew the record away by 9 days…The previous record was .1″ of snow on this date in 1996. As of 10pm they had recorded .3″ and it was snowing heavily.

The earliest one inch in Wichita was Oct 23, 1905.

The 2″ in McPherson is likely a record setter. We will try and track down some dates.

Thanks to Weather Watcher Lance Trostle from McPherson for this image and measurement.

It’s looking like a hard freeze tonight for areas West of I-135. A few areas in South Central Kansas might not get to 28 for 3 hours… we will have to see what our stations tell us overnight.

Road conditions in Western and Central KS:

Temperatures this week:

Temps will remain BELOW average most all week across the entire State.

The pattern continues to develop. We are getting so hints as what to expect.

It’s to early to read anything into the pattern. STAY TUNED as we do think this pattern will be more exciting than the last 2 years.

Remember in 2016, Wichita didn’t get its first snow until MARCH!!

We will keep you posted on what we are thinking….

Have a great Monday Weather Watchers!
