By: Chris Jakub

A second snow event hits Central and Southeast Kansas this December.

A slow moving weather system brought several inches of snow to parts of Kansas late Friday night into Saturday night. Central and south central Kansas witnessed a prolonged snow event, as snow began to fall around midnight on Friday and persisted through Saturday night. The area of snow finally shifted eastward into southeast Kansas on Saturday night. Wind speeds around 15 mph caused some minor drifting of snow across central Kansas. The greatest snow amounts fell across central Kansas with lighter amounts along the Kansas Oklahoma border. Please see Image 1 for a map of the snow totals.
