GOODLAND, Kan. (AP) _ The summer's blistering heat is still a recent memory, but northwestern Kansas has received its first snowfall of the season.

The National Weather Service in Goodland says about a half-inch of snow fell Friday in that city, with all of it melted by noon. Meteorologist Fred Strasser says other northwestern Kansas communities received dustings of about the same amount.

Another system was expected to bring more snow to northwest Kansas, northeastern Colorado and southwestern Nebraska from Friday night into Saturday afternoon. Strasser says accumulations of a half-inch or less are forecast for Kansas, with slightly more possible in Colorado.

Friday as far from a record early snowfall for the Goodland area. Strasser says that distinction belongs to Sept. 17, 1971, when the city received a trace of snow.
