The incredibly historic winter storm continued its assault in southern Kansas on the morning of February 15, 2021, adding another 25 mm (1 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 on February 14 shattered record lows with Wichita recording -21 °C (-7 °F), beating the 1936 record of -20 °C (-4 °F) for the date. The record low for February 15 was already shattered at midnight, but not officially recorded as of late Monday morning.
The previous record was -20.5 °C (-5 °F) in 1936, so far Wichita was -22.2 °C (-8 °F) with wind chill values around -34 °C (-30 °F).
Wichita has not been above the freezing mark in over 8 days and counting, Storm Chasing Video reports.
