Biggest snow storms of the past 20 years

In the past 20 years, five storms have dropped 5.6 or more inches of snow on Lawrence. With the Feb. 1, 2011 storm expected to drop 9 to 13 inches of snow on Lawrence, it would easily be the most snowfall Lawrence has seen in the last 20 years, and would also approach the top five all time.

Bundled up in their winter coats, Julie and Ron Lawton, and their 9-month-old son Kyle, all of Olathe, brave the elements during a shopping trip Oct. 23, 1996, in downtown Lawrence. Residents of northeast Kansas were treated to a pre-Halloween snowstorm throughout the day. Today, weather should get back to normal for the season with a high of 52 forecast
