Southwest Kansas Crippled!  This will be a storm folks in Southwest Kansas will be talking about for some time to come.  The warm conveyer "trowal" feed to the north of the dry intrusion is squarely over Southwest Kansas today… and is only budging slightly north with time.  Another big band of freezing rain is about to move through Dodge City which would surely add another 1/4 to maybe 1/2" on top of the 3/4-1" Meanwhile, freezing rain and sleet has changed to snow farther west now in the Liberal and Garden City areas as the warm layer aloft erodes away. 

 

December 1984.  For Dodge City, I think many will be comparing this current ice storm to that one, where major accumulations of over 1 to 1.5" of ice caused significant damage.  I drove through some of the older neighborhoods just north of downtown Dodge… and 9 to 20" diameter parts of trees are coming down left and right.  The popping sound is pretty amazing and streets are rapidly becoming impassable with so much tree damage in town.
