  • Strong storms for the Ohio Valley, heating up the Southeast

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone!

    Weather is fairly quiet today with a few exceptions.  There’s a system moving through the Ohio Valley that will bring the threat of strong storms.  Damaging winds and hail are the primary concerns:

    Afternoon thunderstorms and dry conditions will keep the wildfire threat elevated from Northern California into the Northwest.  Meanwhile, across the Southwest the Monsoon season is bringing more wet weather across the four corners where flash flooding will be a concern:

    Over the next several days, temperatures will warm to above-average readings from the Plains through the Southeast, and eventually the Midwest by the end of the week.  Temperatures will be 5-15 degrees above average.  This will be the longest stretch of hot weather we’ve seen for much of the summer for many!

    Hope you’re all doing well – I have to tell you my latest book Freddy the Frogcaster and the Big Blizzard is about to arrive in stores and online.  I should be getting my first copies very soon, and I will share a picture when they arrive.  I’m so excited (I think this one is even better than the first!)

    Have a wonderful Tuesday!


  • The south heats up this week!

    Happy Sunday, everyone!

    Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Weather for the most part is quiet this week with a few trouble spots.  There’s a risk for strong to severe storms across the Northern and Central Plains.  Locally heavy rain along with some hail and damaging wind will be possible.  Keep an eye to the sky and an ear to your local weather reports if you live in the yellow shaded zone:

    Heat and humidity returns for the Southeast this week.  Take a look at these temperatures!  With the heat index, it’s going to feel well over 100 degrees for a few days this week.

    Scattered showers and thunderstorms will pop up from Texas to the Tennessee Valley and along the Gulf Coast to Florida while “monsoon” moisture will persist for the four corners.

    In the tropics, we’re watching a disturbance out in the Atlantic, but conditions are not favorable for development – right now.

    Have a relaxing rest of your weekend.  I’ll check back in on Tuesday!


  • Jenna Lee's Baby Shower!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone.

    We had Jenna’s baby shower this afternoon.  Thought I would share a picture of my lovely friends and co-workers that came to celebrate.  There was a lot of love in the room for Jenna and Leif’s new little one that’s almost ready for his or her close up!   What do you guys think?  Boy or Girl?  (I think it’s a boy!)

    Have a great rest of the week.

  • Beautiful view of the "Supermoon"

    Hi everyone

    Did you see the “Supermoon” last night?  I forgot to take a picture from my backyard, but I found this incredible image from the NASA website.

    Happy Monday everyone!   Make it a great day.


  • Hurricane Julio moves north of Hawaii

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Happy Saturday everyone!  My family was back at the beach yesterday, and it’s going to be a wonderful weekend in you live in the Northeast.  Pleasant temperatures and plenty of sunshine.  Get out and enjoy it.

    In other weather news,  Tropical Storm Iselle moved into Hawaii last week.  Thankfully, Hurricane Julio is now forecast to remain well north of the Island Chain keeping the worst of the storm offshore.

    Across the U.S., Showers and thunderstorms will pop up over the Plains with a risk for large hail and damaging winds for Nebraska and Kansas.

    The south will remain unsettled while much of the west should be dry.  The Northwest is still very warm and dry with a high fire threat through the weekend.  We have so many active fires burning over this region.

    I hope you’re all doing great.   Have a wonderful weekend.
