Episode Narrative A strong cold front pushed southeast through western Kansas overnight Tuesday night, bringing cold air into the area Wednesday, January 16th, 2008. A potent upper level storm then crossed from the central Rockies into the central plains Wednesday. This brought scattered snow showers, some with brief heavy snow, and north winds of 20 to 30 mph and gusty, which caused some areas of blowing snow. Snowfall of over 2 inches fell in two separate areas of the CWA, one near Hays and the other near Johnson City. The highest reported snowfall was in Victoria, just east of Hays in Ellis County. Three inch snows were reported from both La Crosse in Rush County and in Johnson City in Stanton County. Two inches of snow fell in Sublette in Haskell County and northward into western Finney County and southeastern Kearny County. Another area of 2 inch snow fell from near Dighton in Lane County east to northern Ellis County and southern Rush County. Poor visibilities resulted in the blowing snow, with less than 1/8th of a mile visibility reported in Haskell County and less than 1 mile visibility reported in Stanton and Ellis counties.
