Record snow across Kansas – On Easter

KWCH News calls it an “Easter miracle”.
Wichita, Kansas, set a new snowfall record for Easter with 3.5 inches, more than double the old record of 1.5 inches set in 1920. 

That was more snow than they had all winter, which was less than an inch.

Kingman received the most snow with 6 inches, while snow in Barber County totaled around three inches.

  1. I note the Weather Channel still insists on naming these new snow storms “Winter Snow Storms”…they have just announced “Winter Snow Storm Troy” on their website even though the US are now into their second week of Spring.

    • Spring Snow is normal, and due to the very early Easter new moon, will remain cold and wet right though to May Day. We even had 2″ of wet snow on the ground in the English Midlands at 200 ft. which lasted all of 5 hrs.
      In Europe the Alps receive more snow during the spring season than during the whole of the previous winter’s period due to the series of Artic cold plunges pushed down over Western Europe from the North West as the Atlantic lows transition over the Baltic into Russia.
      Eventually the Gullible Warmist Weather Channel will have to accept that winter is starting early and lasting longer than the artificial metrological dates for the ending and starts of seasons.
      Such seasons are based on the observations of climate during the “Normal” 140 years solar warm period which ended in 2008. They don’t apply during solar Grand Minimums like the one we are in now.

    • Yep. The new policy will say that they are not to be called “spring” snowstorms until they arrive in the summer.

    • Don’t have any hurricanes, tropical storms or warm gulf push up here in Midwest US. hardly at all anymore , so I guess they gotta name something. And I think it makes just about 97% of weather forecasters on tv look stupid pretending that that hasn’t changed.
