More than a foot of snow fell in parts of northwest Kansas, along with white-out conditions at times, during the snow storm that struck early this week, the National Weather Service reported.

Snow drifts reached 3 feet or more in places, with I-70 closed from the Colorado line to WaKeeney at one point.

Northwestern Sherman County logged 13 inches of snow, according to CoCoRahs, and snowfalls of 8 inches or more were widespread in the region.

Wichita only recorded flurries from the same storm system. Measurable snow isn’t in Wichita’s forecast for at least the next week.
