  • One of the strongest Cyclones in the South Pacific hits Vanuatu

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    It’s a gloomy Saturday in the Northeast.  I had a great time in Boston last week visiting a few schools and reading Freddy.  I also took in some of the local sights.  If you’d like to check out the pictures, you can head to my Facebook page HERE

    In weather, one of the strongest storms to ever hit the South Pacific, Tropical cyclone Pam, battered the capital of Vanuatu as the equivalent of a cat 5 hurricane with winds of 165 miles per hour.   There have been lives lost, and incredible destruction is certain.  Prayers are needed across this vulnerable region…

    The system has brought more than 9 inches of rain with wind gusts of over 190 mph.  The storm is forecast to weaken over the next few days but could threaten the Northeast coast of new Zealand bringing heavy rain and wind to the North Island including Auckland:

    Across the U.S, rain continues from the Mississippi and Ohio River Valleys to the East Coast:

    Some snow will accumulate over Northern New England as cold air moves in behind the system.  It will be interesting to see if we get 2 inches of snow in Boston, they will officially have the snowiest season on record with over 107.6 inches of snow!

    Meanwhile,  a complete change over the Plains and the West with temperatures soaring 15-35 degrees  above average:

    In California records could also be set with temperatures 10-20 degrees above average which could be dangerous for runners of the LA Marathon tomorrow.

    Cooler temperatures move in midweek.

    Have a great, safe weekend everyone!

  • OPEN BLOG!

    I’m off to Boston for a couple of days to read Freddy to some wonderful schools in the area!  I will post pictures when I get back.  They are expecting some nice spring-like weather tomorrow and Thursday.  We’ll be watching a new storm on Friday/Saturday that might break their all time snow record…

    Have a great rest of the week.  Talk to you on the weekend.

  • Did You know That?

    Hi everyone!

    Incase you missed my trip down memory lane with Mr. O’Reilly, here it is!  I think it went great, and what a wonderful way to look back on my career.   He was very kind and generous in this retrospective.  Let me know what you think!

  • Guess who's on O'Reilly Factor TONIGHT!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    If you can tune in, Bill O’Reilly interviewed me earlier this week for a segment they call “Did you Know That?”  featuring some of the folks you see on TV everyday before they came to Fox News!  My mom is calling everyone she knows!

    Let me know what you think.  I was a little nervous, but Mr. O’Reilly was very kind and gracious.

    Talk to you soon!

    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…
