Kennedy inauguration 1961.


8 inches of snow fell and caused the most crippling traffic jam (for its time). Hundreds of cars were marooned and thousands of cars were abandoned. The president-elect had to cancel dinner plans and, in a struggle to keep other commitments, is reported to have had only 4 hours of sleep. Former President Herbert Hoover was unable to fly into Washington National Airport due to the weather and he had to miss the swearing-in ceremony.

On the eve of John F. Kennedy's inauguration (January 19, 1961), the Weather Bureau's morning forecast (shown above) called for the evolution of a nasty mix of precipitation. Snow was predicted to begin in the morning, change to rain in the afternoon and then back to snow overnight before ending early Inauguration Day morning. But in actuality, all snow fell, and a large amount in a short period of time.

As the weather map above shows (left panel), on January 19, low pressure developing in Tennessee Valley interacted with a large Arctic air mass over the Eastern third of the country. Note the big area of high pressure over Canada -- providing the cold air supply critical for snow. As the low headed eastward, snow began to fall in the middle of the afternoon. At the same time, temperatures quickly dropped below freezing. The temperature dropped from 34 to 28 degrees between 3 and 4 p.m. at National Airport as the snow picked up.

According to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the snow became so heavy that afternoon that federal workers were released from work early:

[Federal workers] mixed with scores of inaugural visitors, and a monumental traffic jam ensued. Throughout the region, thousands of vehicles ran out of gas or were abandoned. Pre-Metro public transportation came to a grinding halt.

The snow intensified as a secondary storm developed off the North Carolina coast, tapping abundant moisture from the ocean. According to National Weather Service records, visibility in snow at Reagan National Airport was a half mile or less between 3 and 9 p.m. and snowfall rates were likely in the range of 1-2 inches per hour (0.85" liquid equivalent fell during this time).

Snow continued overnight as the storm moved up the coast as shown in the right panel above. The snow was lighter and more intermittent, but temperatures plunged through the 20s and winds increased to 20-25 mph.

Will be 14 of 20 days this month with precip. 9 rain days.

Early morning surface analysis shows a 1018 mb high centered along
the Mid-Atlantic coast. Looking upstream over our area, a weak wave
of low pressure was evident over the Midwest (central IL-IN) with a
warm front extending southeastward from the low through the southern
Appalachians and along the GA-SC coast. Water vapor satellite loop
shows a well-defined upper low spinning somewhere near the Upper
Mississippi and Red River basins. A low-level jet continues to draw
deeper moisture from the Gulf of Mexico ahead of the system,
resulting in an organized band of precipitation over the Southeast
and Midwest States overnight..

An upper level disturbance weakens as it moves across tonight.

Band of light rain progresses east this evening. Lift weakens as the
shortwave weakens and gets trapped under buildings heights aloft.
Pops diminish from west to east through night. A few hundredths to
a tenth of inch total forecast with this system. Low level
moisture lingers through the night and with weak flow some patchy
fog is possible. Temperatures will not be able to fall too much
due to linger clouds with lows forecast above freezing across the

High pressure returns on Saturday.

Good luck guys...here it comes..

Low pressure crossing the Great Lakes region Sunday night lifts a
warm front into our area. This will be quickly followed by a cold
front pushing through the region Monday afternoon

...Heavy snow possible from portions of the northern plains and Midwest to
the Northeast...

A low pressure system over the central U.S. this morning will spread snow
across areas from the northern plains to the Northeast today and tonight.
Heavy snow is possible for some areas. Farther south, a mix of wintry
precipitation including snow, sleet, freezing rain, and rain is possible
from portions of the Ohio valley east into the Mid-Atlantic region today
and tonight.

Yup, another storm thread... I didn't see one for this little event...what a pattern we're in. This is for the shortwave coming through Sunday-Monday. VERY light precip which may break up coming across.

Upper level short wave approaches Sunday night. However, it will
de-amplify and weaken as it does so. So only slight chance POPs with
light amounts of QPF expected Sunday night into Monday. Temperatures
may be cold enough inland for some snow showers, but again, not
expecting any accumulation since QPF will be light.

National Weather Service State College PA
446 AM EST Fri Dec 2 2016

Sunday evening and night, a period of light snow is
looking likely as a northern stream shortwave races through the
region with a burst of warm advection. QPF looks to be on the
order of a tenth of an inch or less, but occurring overnight many
places could see their first coating of snow of the young season
by Mon morning. Snow is more likely in the NW than SE.
