Residents of far northwest Kansas have received their first measureable snow of the season.

Heavy snow bands developed overnight, dropping snow across Northwest Kansas. While accumulation on roads has been fairly limited, elevated surfaces have been covered.

Goodland: 5" on elevated surfaces, 1-2" on sidewalks
Edson: 5"

As the storm system tracks south and east into central Kansas, snow will eventually change over to rain. Accumulated snow will melt quickly with highs in the mid to upper 40s in northwest Kansas.

The National Weather Service in Wichita reports the earliest record of snow in the city is a trace on September 26, 1942. The earliest measurable snowfall on record is 0.1 inches on October 22, 1996.
