While most of Northwest Kansas experienced some snow, other parts of the state dealt with the threat of tornadoes. Several tornado warnings were issued, with one funnel touching down near Harper, Kansas. Nobody hurt there.

The precipitation in Kansas over the weekend was helpful, but it isn’t expected to be enough to bring most of the state out of drought. About 80 percent of the state is in some level of drought, with parts of southwest Kansas categorized as “extreme” according to the US Drought Monitor. Our newsroom in Colby reports .75″ of precipitation, mostly rain, with reports of as much as 1.55″ elsewhere in Northwest Kansas.
