Two rounds of wintry precipitation impacted a large portion of Kansas, causing widespread travel issues. The first round brought heavy snow to the I-70 corridor, with icing occurring across parts of southern Kansas. The second round brought a band of snow across south-central and southeast Kansas, including the Wichita metro. This band of snow wasn't as heavy as what occurred with the first round, but still had an impact. Regionally, several fatalities were attributed to the winter storm, unfortunately.
