A powerful upper level storm system lifted out of the desert Southwest and into the Midwest this weekend, producing widespread snow accumulations as it moved through.  Snowfall totals ranged from 6-8 inches over much of central Kansas and southwestern Nebraska.  Closer to home, snowfall reports of 4 to 5 inches were common in areas from Princeton, to Kirksville, and Macon.  Farther to the west and southwest,  many snowfall reports of 5 to 6 inches were found in areas from St. Joseph to Kansas City, Warrensburg, Sedalia, and Butler.  The highest snowfall report received was found just south of the city of Clinton, MO with 6.2 inches of snow reported.

Here is a list of snowfall totals from many cities across eastern Kansas and north central Missouri.  These reports were made by a variety of sources including: NWS storm spotters, NWS cooperative observers, media reports, and reports from volunteer observers.  To see additional reports during the storm, please view our Local Storm Reports product.
