    Hi everyone

    Thought I’d post an Open Blog here.  We have ANOTHER winter storm that will bring every type of winter precipitation for much of the country.  Be safe!  I will check in a little later this week…

  • Here we go again...snow and ice...

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    Sorry for the absence.  I had a really bad cold, and was home for a few days “under the weather”

    And would you believe we have another winter storm to talk about? Of course you would, because that has been the story now for many weeks.  Spring can’t come soon enough!

    Here’s the latest:

    Snow and freezing rain will make life difficult from the Midwest to the Northeast today into Monday.  Half a foot of snow or more has already fallen across parts of Missouri, Illinois and Indiana.

    The worst of the snow/ice will move across the Northeast corridor (I-95) through tonight and overnight, but conditions will improve for the morning commute.

    Boston will see snow late tonight…possibly enough to break their record for snowiest year ever?  We’ll have to see if that happens.   They need just a little over 5 inches of snow to break the record of 107.6 inches!   If not tonight, another measurable snow event comes later this week.

    South of the snow, sleet/freezing rain is possible across the Ohio Valley and Mid Atlantic.  This includes Northeast Maryland, southeast Philly and Central Jersey.

    Meanwhile, our second winter storm has started in the Southwest bringing rain and snow for California.

    Rain could be locally heavy for parts of Arizona including Phoenix through Monday, while snow will fall across the Southern Rockies (including Colorado, New Mexico and Utah)

    The snow and ice from this storm will then spread east over the Plains, Midwest and Northeast this week.  Stay tuned….

    I hope you’re all keeping safe and warm.  It seems like this winter has been a tough one (I think I probably said that same thing this time last year!)

  • Wintery mess for the south, and record brrrrrr-reaking cold!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    Wow.  We set some pretty impressive daily records this morning for many big cities:

    A  wintry mix, with snow, freezing rain, and rain will continue across the the South  while another arctic air mass has settled across the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic:

    Temperatures are as much as 25 degrees below average.

    Next up, a system over the Southwest and Southern Rockies will spread rain and snow across the Four-Corners region today, and we can expect more wintry weather across the south tomorrow and Thursday.

    Looks like as we head into the month of March, the extremely cold air will retreat a bit giving us some “average” temperatures which I’m sure a lot of us will find to be extremely warm!

    Talk to you later this week

  • More wintery weather on the way...

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hello everyone!

    Here we go again.  Another weekend, another winter storm…hope you’re all doing well.

    We’ve got a  wintry mix across the Tennessee and Ohio Valley,  spreading across the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.

    Rainfall across the Mid-Mississippi River Valley and western KY/TN will be heavy at times, causing localized flooding.  Overnight, temperatures will rise with precipitation  changing to all-rain and exiting the coast Sunday.

    Meanwhile, another frigid air mass will push into the  Midwest and Great Lakes.

    Upslope snow will develop across the Central Rockies and Front Range later today through Sunday.

    Winter Storm Warnings are posted as 1-2 feet of snow is possible, especially in the Foothills west and southwest of Denver.

    Here’s what the pattern looks like over the next 7 days:

    Spring is less than a month away…let’s keep our fingers crossed!

  • More snow...and record cold as far south as FLORIDA!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    It has been a busy last few days, and it looks like the cold and snow is here to stay across the Eastern U.S. while the dry warm weather will continue for the West:

    The system that brought heavy snow and ice to the South, Tennessee Valley, and Mid-Atlantic yesterday and overnight will move offshore today.  Look at some of these totals:

    But that’s not the end to the wintery weather, and behind this, we will set record temperatures as another huge plunge of arctic air moves in:

    Weather across the Midwest and East will remain unsettled another weak system moves through the region into tomorrow, along with reinforcing shots of Arctic air by the end of the week.

    I think Boston will move into the second snowiest season on record with the next round of snow this week:

    Yeash!  The countdown to spring is on my friends!
