  • Strong to severe storms for the Northeast, Harvey and Eclipse weather!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.

    Happy Friday.  We’ve got a few weather stories we’re watching closely, and Solar Eclipse 2017 is coming to a city near you Monday, so we’ll cover that too.

    First up:  Scattered storms and locally heavy rain across the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Central Plains may cause flash flooding today.

    We even have a risk for strong to severe storms for millions living along the I-95 corridor:

    Tropical Storm Harvey formed Thursday evening east of the Lesser Antilles, and will move through those islands today.

    The environment in the Caribbean isn’t optimal, so only gradual strengthening is expected over the next 5 days at it approaches Central America.  At this time, Harvey is not expected to have any U.S. impacts.

    Next week we’ll be monitoring a few other disturbances currently farther out in the Atlantic, as they move westward.

    And the Total Solar Eclipse is coming!  I’ll be out in Greenville, South Carolina which is in the “path of totality”

    I’ll also be promoting my brand new Freddy the Frogcaster book which comes out the same day!

    Yay Freddy!  If you’re in Greenville, stop by and say Hi!  The weather is going to be sunny and hot.

    And if you’re wondering if clouds might obstruct your view of the eclipse, here’s a look at the forecast along the path of “Totality”:

    Don’t forget to protect your eyes at all time during the eclipse.  If you don’t have proper eyewear you shouldn’t look up at the sun at all.

    That’s all for now.  Have a great, safe weekend everyone.  See you Monday!

  • Severe storms and High Heat

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.  Happy Thursday!

    We had a pretty scary night across parts of the Upper Midwest with severe storms moving through.

    That same system will bring more of the same over the Great Lakes/Ohio River Valley today while a new system pushes across the Texas Panhandle/High Plains.

    Large hail, damaging winds, and an isolated tornado are possible.   Flash flooding is also a concern with heavier downpours.

    Meanwhile, heat advisories are posted across the Gulf Coast and South as heat indices rise above 100 degrees in much of the region:

    Be sure to stay cool and check on your kids, pets and the elderly.

    Also, the tropics are getting active with three separate waves we are monitoring coming off the coast of Africa:

    Here’s a look at the rest of the forecast across the country:

    Have a great day everyone.  See you on Fox and Friends.

  • Strong thunderstorms for the Midwest and Hurricane Gert

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good Tuesday morning All!

    We are watching the threat for scattered strong storms across the Central Plains this afternoon-evening.

    Large hail, damaging winds, and an isolated tornado are possible.

    And ocean swells from Hurricane Gert will reach the East Coast today lasting into Wednesday, enhancing the rip current risk.

    We’re also watching an area of low pressure that could develop into our next named system in the next few days across the Atlantic:

    Meanwhile, here’s the rest of your weather headlines across the country:

    Have a wonderful day!  See you on Fox and Friends everyone.

  • National Hurricane Center upgrades their forecast

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.

    A lot going on in the weather department this morning.  We’ve got strong to severe thunderstorms possible across portions of the Plains.  Hail and strong winds will be the primary risk, but we can’t rule out a tornadoes or two.  Flash flooding will also be a concern.

    Across the west,  locally heavy rains may also cause flash flooding along the northern California and Nevada border.

    Meanwhile, Hurricane Franklin has been downgraded to a tropical storm bringing heavy rain and strong winds to the east coast of Mexico.

    Flash flooding and mudslides will be an ongoing concern.

    And the  National Hurricane Center has upgraded their predictions for the Atlantic season with 14-16 named storms, 5-9 hurricanes and 2-5 major hurricanes cat 3 or higher.

    Folks along the east coast, gulf of Mexico need to be on alert as we head into peak season.

    We have our eyes on a couple of disturbances out in the Atlantic pretty close to home:

    We will keep you updated as always.

  • Cooler than average for much of the country

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone!  Hope you all had a great weekend.  We’ve had a lot of heavy rain from the South to the East Coast.  We’re still watching for isolated flooding with storms across the Southeast.

    A powerful cold front is part of the reason we’re seeing all the rain, plus we’ve got below average temperatures for two thirds of the country.  That pattern is going to stay with us for the next week or so.

    The center of Tropical Storm Franklin is spreading heavy rain across the Yucatan Peninsula. The system will move over the Bay of Campeche and make a 2nd Mexico landfall Thursday. Thankfully Franklin will not be a threat to the U.S.

    Have a wonderful day everyone.  See you on Fox and Friends!
