WASHINGTON, D.C. — Washington, D.C., and other cities along the east coast such as Philadelphia, New York City, Baltimore, along with many others were blankets with several inches of snow on Monday.
The first major snowstorm of 2022 hit the eastern cities, leaving anywhere from 6-7 inches on the ground.
President Biden and Air Force One made a dramatic landing at Joint Base Andrews during the snowstorm. There were so much snow on the tarmac, that it took a half-dozen people to move a staircase that got stuck in the snow so the President could get off Air Force Once.
In Ohio, the Miami Valley has the potential to see it’s first significant snowfall of the season. Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Austin Chaney said there is still a large amount of model disagreement leading up to this potential snow.
The usually more reliable European model does support the idea of snow across the Miami Valley. However, the American GFS model continues to suggest much drier conditions on Thursday. The snowfall that the GFS does develop is mainly south of the Miami Valley.
“We need to get closer to the event to nail down the specifics,” Chaney said. “Starting Monday, the Thursday system will begin to come in range of the high-resolution model guidance. This will give us a better idea on how everything should play out.”
One thing is for sure, it will get cold. Expect highs on Thursday and Friday to only reach the 20s. Low temperatures Friday and Saturday morning will likely drop into the lower teens.
