Snow boosts Wichita’s winter total to nearly 11 inches

Snow from earlier this week has lifted Wichita’s total for the season to nearly 11 inches, weather officials say.

The 10.9 inches of snow is about a half-inch below normal for this time of the season, said Scott Smith, a meteorologist with the Wichita branch of the National Weather Service. That deficit may well vanish this weekend, when snow is expected to be part of a wintry mix of precipitation.

“It does look like something messy’s coming in,” Smith said.

But it’s too far out to have a good reading on how much snow will fall where, he said. Stay tuned to later forecasts.
