  • Record highs shattered yesterday!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Wow.  Did you feel it yesterday if you live in the Northeast?

    Full on late spring-summertime temperatures!  High temperature records were shattered.

    Now back to reality!   Following record highs yesterday from the eastern Ohio River Valley to the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, today temperatures will be a full 30+ degrees cooler than Wednesday.

    Temperatures across the Southeast will remain above average while the Plains and West remain cooler than average

    A stalled front will bring a range of weather including the threat for flooding rain, freezing rain and ice on the northern side of the boundary from North Texas up into the Great Lakes and Interior Northeast where temperatures are below freezing at the surface.

    Heavy rain on the southern edge of the boundary will bring very heavy rain with flood watches and warnings posted from the southern Mississippi Valley into the Ohio Valley.

    Here’s a look at some of the potential rainfall totals over the weekend.  Notice the big snow across the West!

    More details coming up on Fox and Friends.  I’m buying coffee!


  • Springtime warmth for the East, Winter across the West

    Good morning everyone!

    We’ve got a messy mix of freezing rain and heavy rain that is falling from the Central and Southern Plains through the Mississippi River Valley and Ohio River Valley.

    Flooding is possible where heavier rain falls. Flash flood watches and warnings are up from Texas to the Great Lakes.

    While temperatures across the West, Rockies, and High Plains remain 15 to 30 degrees below average  highs across the eastern third of the country will be 15 to 30 degrees above average.

    We’ll have more details for you on Fox and Friends!  See you then my friends.


  • Big weather for much of the country

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone!

    We’ve got a lot of weather to keep track of this week as a large storm system that stretches from the West Coast to the Great Lakes moves east…

    Heavy snow with strong winds will howl across the mountains while snow and ice will be a problem over parts of the Midwest.

    Heavy rain will bring the threat for widespread flooding over the Mississippi Valley, up into the Ohio Valley and the Great Lakes along a stalled front.

    Ahead of that front, temperatures will warm up considerably tomorrow and Wednesday.

    Look at Florida with temperatures in the 80s!

    We’ll keep you up to date!  Stay tuned for Fox and Friends.


  • Quick winter storm for the Northeast, Flooding concerns next week

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.  Welcome to Friday.    We’ve got a few things to look out for as we head into the weekend.

    A mix of rain and snow will fall across the interior Northeast today.  Rain along this same boundary will extend to the Lower Mississippi River Valley through the weekend into next week.  You can see the boundary here on our temperature map between the warmer air ahead of it and the cooler air behind it.

    Flooding will be a major problem along that same boundary from the south up into the  TN and Ohio Valley next week.

    Colder air and a developing system will bring a wintry mix and snow from the Mid-Atlantic to New England on Saturday afternoon-overnight.

    Some areas could see several inches of snow.

    Winter storm watches are in effect for parts of Eastern PA into NYC up into southern New England:

    Meanwhile, the Northwest and Northern Rockies will see more heavy mountain snow as another system moves into the regions today through Saturday.

    Have a great, safe weekend everyone.  See you Monday.


  • Warmer air moves into the East, heavy snow for the West

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.  Hope your weekend was great.  It was a rainy one here in the Northeast, but that wet weather is clearing out today:

    Bitterly cold and dangerous temperatures will moderate over the Northern Plains Tuesday.

    Heavy snow will make travel difficult over the Central and Southern Rockies this week with more unsettled weather for much of the West.  The East will see mainly rain over the next 5 days.

    And a warm up will be in store for  much of the Eastern third of the country later this week.

    Hope you’re all doing well.  See you on Fox and Friends!
