A rare November snow storm affected much of South Central and Eastern Kansas on Saturday November 25th. Wichita received 7.8 inches of snowfall which was the 2nd greatest one day November snowfall on record for Wichita. With just this one storm, November 2023 will go down as the 4th snowiest November on record for Wichita.

Even more amazing, there were locations north and northeast of Wichita that picked-up over a foot of snow! Numerous accidents were reported with parts of I-135 shut down on Saturday due to several accidents. In addition, the Wichita Eisenhower Airport was shutdown Saturday evening due to the heavy snowfall.
