Where did the snow go?
After receiving 19.6 inches of snow at the Dodge City airport through January of this year, Mother Nature did a disappearing act on snow at least at Dodge City.
For February, March and April, only a tenth of an inch of snow was reported at the Dodge City airport. This is the second lowest amount ever recorded in weather history at Dodge City. Only a trace fell during this same period in 1904 and 1930.
The 30 year average for this same period is 10.3 inches (see graph) <a href="/ddc/news/snowfall.gif" target="_blank">Normal Snowfall and 2004/2005 totals</a>
