Historic Cold Temps and Snow In The Morning in Wichita, KS – 2/15/2021

This incredibly historic winter storm continued its assault in southern Kansas this morning adding another inch or more of snow during the Monday morning commute. Traffic was lighter than normal thanks to the holiday, but icy conditions and low visibility lead to a few issues.

Temperatures yesterday shattered record lows with Wichita recording -7, beating the 1936 record of -4 for the date (Feb 14).

The record low for Feb 15th was already shattered at midnight, but not officially recorded as of late this morning. The previous record was -5 in 1936, so far Wichita was -8 with wind chill values around -30.

Wichita has not been above the freezing mark in over 8 days and counting.
