The hardest-hit part of Kansas was the north-central section of the state, where 6-inch accumulations were recorded. Two inches fell in the northwest and 2 to 4 inches in the state’s far northeast section. Light snow and freezing drizzle were reported in south-central, southeast and central Kansas.
