It’s late Sunday night but the White House caused a major media incident with this photo titled, “First snow of the year!” that was posted at 8:55 pm (it’s not snowing in D.C.today):

Journos quickly jumped in to question the White House over it:
it was 68 and sunny today? https://t.co/cRX5FEekls

Sort of an odd tweet considering that it was 70 degrees today and I was wearing shorts in DC https://t.co/zWhMavZf0s

Eventually this will happen:
I am living for the journos and broken brain resistance libs on Twitter crying that the White House tweeting a picture of snow is an assault on the Constitution

Anyway, the most likely explanation is that this was a scheduling error with their social media feed:
Everyone is mocking the @whitehouse tweet like they've never had a photo tweet get stuck in their drafts and end up getting sent days later.

And how do we know this? Easy. This photo was posted to Flickr on January 7, when it did actually snow:
