The snow that fell this weekend in the Wichita area was a heavy, wet snow, forecasters say. That helped boost the moisture content – good news for an area still trying the free itself from the shackles of a long-term drought.

Southern Kansas still needs as much as 3 inches to ease the drought, according to the national drought monitor – though local forecasters say that the number is actually closer to 6 inches.
