It Was So Cold In Kansas In 1983, Temperatures Stayed Below Freezing For Nearly Three Weeks Straight

The Sunflower State isn’t particularly known for frigid temperatures. Sure, it gets cold here, and we do get some snow, but with an average annual snowfall of around 15″, it tends to be a lot less winter precipitation than many other states. We’re around the middle of the pack when it comes to ranking all 50 states based on winter metrics like snowfall, average minimum temperature, and average maximum temperature. But we have had some pretty rough winters in Kansas. A look back in history shows quite a few notable seasons with multiple blizzards, extended freezing temperatures, and sub-zero degree weather. One of the coldest winters in Kansas happened in 1983, when much of the state saw freezing temperatures for nearly three consecutive weeks!
