An upper level disturbance and associated strong Arctic cold front moving south across Mid-America supported areas of light to moderate snow spreading south across the region during the pre-dawn and morning hours of January 15th.  Accumulations of around a dusting to one-half inch were common, although portions of central and southeast Kansas received 1 to 3 inches.  Numerous traffic accidents no doubt occurred.  The 0.3 inches measured at Wichita Eisenhower National Airport broke a record 393-day measurable snow drought in Wichita.  Furthermore, breezy north winds and falling temperatures in wake of the Arctic cold front supported bitter cold wind chills.
