Today in Weather History

Good morning, folks! What a long week it’s been, or so it seems! We hope you’re doing well!

On this day, in 1912, the city of Kansas City, Kansas, fell victim to a record-breaking snowstorm. In a twenty-four-hour time period, a total of twenty-five inches of snowfall fell, to which is twice that of the previous record. In this year, the state saw sixty-seven inches of snowfall total, to which also broke the previous record. To this into perspective, the state of Kentucky has an average of eleven inches of snowfall per year, so the singular snowstorm had more than double the amount of that! Incredible!

Have a great weekend!
