04/23/2013 Salina, Kansas Spring Snow

A very rare late season snow hits north central Kansas on Tuesday, dumping upwards of 3-inches in areas. 

The average snowfall in April for this region is around 1-inch, so definitely not common to see this kind of snow so late into April!

North Central Kansas was rocked by a late Spring Snow Storm on April 23, 2013. Salina, Kansas received a few inches of snow between the hours of 2am and 11am. The snow on a few of the back roads were a little slick and a few cars went off the road into fields. Visibility on Interstates I-70 and I-135 was around a few miles. The plow trucks were out plowing snow off of the sides of the roads. Road conditions seemed good. I-70 is closed out by Goodland, KS and the road signs were letting west bound drivers know. Once the snow stopped I drove through one of the nicer neighborhoods. A few of the houses had had tulips planted. These were covered in snow. There were also budding trees which were covered in snow as well.
