Finger on the Weather

A snow not seen in 40 years

It may not have seemed like much, but the snow that fell Sunday in Wichita was the most early-season white stuff to descend upon the city in 40 years.

The official total was 1.8 inches, not exceeded since 1974, according to the National Weather Service. Much of the city received 2 inches, however, and that mark hasn’t been topped since 1959.

I asked readers to share photos of the snow in their neighborhoods. Enjoy!
