Nearly half a foot of snow fell in some parts of Kansas late Wednesday night and Thursday morning as a winter storm moved through the Sunflower State.
Concordia reported 5 inches of snow in northern Kansas, and another 5-inch report came from near Goessel in Marion County, according to storm reports collected by the National Weather Service.
Ellsworth logged 4 1/2 inches and Salina 3 1/2 inches. Wichita collected 2.7 inches, bringing the city’s total for the winter to 4 1/2 inches.
With highs projected to approach and then top 40 through the weekend and into early next week, the snow won’t be around for long. But it’ll give thirsty soil a welcome drink as it melts.
