Yes, it rained early Wednesday morning in the Wichita metropolitan area. But as this map generated by the National Weather Service shows, it didn’t amount to much in southern Kansas.

Not enough enough to settle the dust. It was just “a dirty rain,” as weather service meteorologist Vanessa Pearce put it. Rain drops collected dust particles from the atmosphere as they fell, splotching cars and homes and outbuildings.

The official rainfall total for Wichita is .02, collected at the weather service office in southwest Wichita.
