It was a snowy end to 2012.
According to the National Weather Service, a fast moving upper level disturbance moved out across the plains on Monday December 31st. This system brought widespread snowfall to most of Kansas.
The highest amounts occurred over far western Kansas where 6 to 10 inches of snow fell. Meanwhile over Central Kansas 2 to 5 inches of snowfall was reported.
Hazardous road conditions kept Salina area law enforcement and tow truck drivers busy In the evening New Year's Eve. There were multiple vehicle slide-offs along Interstate 70 and Interstate 135. At one point in the evening officials were working abut a half-dozen at the same time.
There were no immediate reports of serious injuries.
