This Sunday marked a noteworthy date in Kiowa County weather history. December 29, 2006, 28 inches of snow fell at Sheridan Lake in a 24-hour period. That is the record one-day snowfall for the county. This is also the record for a two-day snowfall.

The most snow to ever fall in Kiowa County in a three-day time span was 32 inches at Haswell November 5, 1946.

No snow in the forecast for next week as we go into a warming trend with drier weather.

New Year's Eve and New Year's Day are looking fair to partly cloudy, with highs in the 40s and lows in the teens.
