Crippling snow storm buries much of Kansas.
A powerful storm system ejected out of the southern Rockies and into the plains on February 21st and brought some of the highest snowfall amounts this area has seen in decades.
As of 7 pm on February 21st the Wichita Mid-Continent Airport has measured a storm total snowfall of 14.2 inches which makes this storm the 2nd worst on record! The highest storm total snowfall for Wichita occurred back in 1962 when a storm dumped 15 inches.
One of the more unique aspects of this storm was the amount of thundersnow that took place during the early morning hours of February 21st. Below is video taken from a security camera at the National Weather Service in Wichita showing the lightning associated with the thundersnow.
