A strong weather system raced across the region early Sunday morning and blanketed southern Kansas with one to four inches of wet snow. A few locations witnessed even higher totals of five and six inches. Even though the period of snow fall was brief last night, it came down at a high rate due to embedded thunder snow at times.
