With weather patterns suggesting winter has waved the white flag in Kansas, we can take a closer look at where this winter ranks in delivering the white stuff to Wichita.
Or, more to the point, not delivering snow.
Just 3 inches of snow fell this winter in Wichita, tying 2011-12 with 1920-21 for 7th on the list of lowest snowfall totals in Wichita history.
Here’s the list, compiled by the National Weather Service:
1) 0.7 Inch 1922-232) 0.8 Inch 1903-043) 1.3 Inches 1993-944) 1.8 Inches 1991-925) 2.0 Inches 1907-086) 2.9 Inches 1891-927) 3.0 Inches 1920-21 & 2011-129) 3.1 Inches 1908-8110) 3.8 Inches 1895-1896
Accumulating snow has been recorded in Wichita into April, so forecasters aren’t eager to shut the door just yet. But computer models aren’t suggesting a return to wintry weather any time soon.
