Early afternoon snow totals in Wichita

About 5 inches of snow has already fallen in northeast Wichita, according to WeatherData’s Mike Smith. Perhaps 3 inches had fallen in downtown Wichita, he said.

WeatherData is estimating northeast Wichita will receive 8 to 12 inches from this storm, while the rest of the Wichita metropolitan area will get 6 to 10. Here’s a WeatherData map of snowfall projections that Smith posted on his blog.

That map was posted at about 7 a.m., but Smith said early this afternoon it should still hold up.
