Here in Wichita, it has been 383 days since our last measurable snowfall. We average 16" a year. None is forecast in the immediate future (next four days).

The gap is in the heart of the winter wheat belt. Without snow cover, the 2018 crop is vulnerable to, and may have already been damaged by, the extreme cold of the past three weeks.
