A compact but powerful upper level low pressure system moved out of the Southern Rockies and into the Oklahoma Panhandle and southwest Kansas during the early morning hours of January 21st. This storm system brought significant snowfall to west-central Kansas with snowfall amounts in the 4 to 10 inch range. At one point, Interstate 70 was closed west of  Hays, KS due to dangerous conditions.
