Snowfall Totals from February 3rd/4th Winter Storm

A small but potent storm impacting the region late Wednesday February 3rd into early on Thursday February 4th, brought another round of snowfall to the area before exiting southwest Kansas by early to mid afternoon on Thursday. Temperatures remained close enough to the freezing mark to keep snow on the wetter/slushier slide for most of the event with snow accumulations by 7 am Thursday staying in the 1-3 inch range generally along and north of US Highway 50.  However, further south some narrow but intense bands of precipitation brought higher snowfall rates across extreme southwest Kansas into the Oklahoma and northern Texas Panhandles. Snowfall accumulations across this area ranged from as low a 3 inches to well over 8 inches in some locations with both Liberal and Elkhart reporting snowfall accumulations of 6 inches by 7 am Thursday.  

The map below outlines snowfall totals from across the area:
