Wichita Weather & Climate

Southeast Kansas has a humid subtropical climate, with hot summers and mild winters. The southeast region has more precipitation than any other area of the state. The state of Kansas lies across the path of alternate masses of warm moist air moving north from the Gulf of Mexico and currents of cold, comparatively dry, air moving from the polar regions. Consequently, the weather is subject to frequent and often sharp changes, usually of short duration. The overall annual precipitation for the area averages 27 inches, although years of drought have not been uncommon. The annual snowfall is less than 11 inches in the far southeast. Tornadoes are a fact of life in the state of Kansas, with an average of 50 per year.
