... On this date in weather history...

In 2013, the second day of a huge 2-day snowstorm
continued across Kansas. Most of central and south
central Kansas received 10 to 14 inches, but parts of
Kingman County received 1.5 feet. An additional 8 inches
of snow were measured at wichita's Mid Continent Airport.
With 6.2 inches measured on the 20th, this brought the
storm total to 14.2 inches. This made the snowstorm of
February 20th and 21st the second worst snowstorm in
wichita's history. No doubt, travel was treacherous; so
much in fact, that several emergency response teams were
stuck responding to calls. In 1971, a blizzard struck
the southern half of Kansas, burying these areas with 10
to 13 inches of snow. Northeast 30 to 40 mph winds
produced near zero visibilities. Wichita Mid Continent
Airport received 11.6 inches of snow. This ranks
February 21st, 1971 4th on the all time greatest
snowfalls list to occur on a calendar day. With another
1.2 inches measured early in the morning of the 22nd,
this brought the snowstorm total to 12.8 inches. This
placed the blizzard of February 21st and 22nd in a tie
with the December 23rd and 24th, 1918 snowstorm as the
4th worst snowstorms to hit the air capital.
