Snowfall by the numbers across Kansas

Snowfall accumulations can vary dramatically over even a small area, but perhaps the most impressive aspect of the just-completed storm was how widespread the substantial snowfalls were.
Nashville in Kingman County reported 18 inches of snow. That’s only about 30 miles west of Wichita, where 14.2 inches fell. But Hays, where 17 inches fell, is more than 180 highway miles from Wichita in northcentral Kansas. Hill City, which logged 15, is more than 200 miles from Wichita.
Much of Kansas received more than a foot of snow. Not just most of a county or two – much of the state.
This compiled list of snowfall reports reflects the size of the storm. Keep in mind, more snow fell after some of these reports were made.
