  • Memorial Day and Hurricane Forecast

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning All.  Happy Friday.

    It’s the first official week of our Summer Concert Series on Fox and Friends.  Phil Vassar will be here, and over the next few weeks we will have some amazing bands performing on the Plaza, so if you’re in NYC, please come visit and enjoy some great music and BBQ from Famous Dave’s!

    The forecast this morning is unsettled, and that’s what we’re going to be dealing with for much of the weekend across the Northeast.

    Severe storms will be a risk over the High Plains today, and then it will be more widespread Saturday.

    Here’s the threat tomorrow with large hail, damaging winds and tornadoes:

    A look ahead to your Memorial Day weather, the eastern third of the U.S. will be at risk for showers and thunderstorms for much of the weekend:

    Here’s a look at Today’s Highs:

    Moving on to our Atlantic Hurricane forecast (the season begins June 1st) NOAA has put out their seasonal outlook, and we could be looking at above average numbers this summer into fall:

    Remember it just takes one bad hurricane to make it a memorable year!

    Here’s the list of names:

    And here’s when we see the most tropical activity:

    Have a great Memorial Day weekend everyone.  See you on Fox and Friends!


  • Storms move into the Northeast and a peek at Memorial Day

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone!

    It’s a another wet day across the Northeast and the MidAtlantic:

    A system that brought over a dozen tornadoes across the southeast will now bring the risk of rain with a few embedded thunderstorms.

    Tomorrow the risk will be over the Central High Plains as a new storm emerges from the Rockies

    Meanwhile, strong winds and very low humidity will create dangerous fire weather conditions in parts of the Desert Southwest and southern High Plains:

    Here’s a look at your highs today:

    And a quick peek ahead to Memorial Day, we have a chance for showers and storms again for the eastern third of the country:

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


  • Heavy rain and the threat for severe storms for the Gulf Coast

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.  Hope you had a wonderful weekend.   We had a beautiful few days in the Northeast.  This week brings unsettled and cooler weather for many.  Wet weather will be the story for the South and Gulf Coast.

    Flash flooding will be a concern for several states:

    A slight risk for severe storms will bring the threat for hail and damaging winds and an isolated tornado:

    Out west, very warm temperatures will start the week. As temperatures rise, snow melt and flooding will be a threat.

    Have a great Monday everyone.  See you on Fox and Friends!


  • Severe storms, snow and heavy rain for the Plains

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.  Happy Friday.  We’ve had a busy week in the weather department with dozens of tornado reports, severe storms and even snow across the mountains.

    More of the same is expected from the South/Central Plains into the Middle Mississippi Valley.

    Very heavy rains associated with these storms may produce localized flash flooding especially over regions that have seen record breaking rain this spring:

    Along the front range, heavy snows will continue with some areas receiving 2-4 feet!

    Have a great weekend everyone.  See you on Fox and Friends!


  • Severe storms strike the Central U.S. and a heat wave for the Northeast

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good Wednesday Morning everyone!

    It was a destructive day across the central U.S. yesterday with over a dozen tornadoes and over a hundred storm reports:

    More severe weather is expected for the Lower Mississippi Valley and portions of the Upper Midwest. Some of these storms may contain heavy rainfall capable of producing flash flooding.

    In the west, unusually cool and wet weather with snow over the higher elevations will be ongoing. Winter weather advisories are up for the Rockies with some areas seeing over two feet of snow!

    And the heat is on for the Northeast with the potential for record heat over the next couple of days:

    The warm temperatures will subside by the end of the week with more seasonal highs pushing in over the weekend.

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