... On this date in weather history...

In 2002, the combination of strong winds and one to three inches
of snow created near blizzard like conditions across western Kansas
on Saturday February 9th. Winds were sustained at 40 to 50 mph with
gusts to near 70 mph, which reduced visibilities below one mile in
areas of blowing snow and created three to four foot snow drifts.
These winds were also accompanied by temperatures in the
twenties, which created wind chill readings between 10 and 15
degrees below zero. Interstate 70 was closed, along with many
other County roads across the region. Finally, the strong winds
blew down 4 to 8 inch diameter tree limbs and power lines were
reported down in Norton County.

In 2011, Arctic air surged across the tri-state area with wind chill
values dropping down to minus 30 degrees fahrenheit.
