  • Emily and High Heat for the West Coast

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good Morning everyone.  Happy Tuesday.  Did you hear we had a tropical storm form yesterday?

    As quickly as it was named, it has now weakened to a depression.

    But what’s left of Emily will exit Florida’s east coast today, and continue enhancing rainfall across South Florida through this evening.

    Heat Warnings and Advisories remain in effect this week across the West Coast from Southern California to Washington:

    As you can see, afternoon highs remain well above average.   Heat watches and warnings are in effect along the coast:

    We’re also watching the potential for flooding across the Southwest with more monsoonal moisture in the forecast:

    Flood advisories are up for the threat of heavy rain in a short time:

    Here’s a look at the rest of your forecast:

    See you soon on Fox and Friends!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.  Happy Friday.  It’s the last official weekend of July – and we are feeling the heat and humidity across Texas and the Southern Plains into the Southern Mississippi River Valley.

    Meanwhile, a few strong storms will develop from the Southeast to the Mid-Atlantic.

    Damaging winds, some hail, and flash flooding are the primary threats.

    And speaking of heavy rain, flood watches remain posted across New Mexico and the Southwest/Southern Rockies with more monsoonal moisture into the weekend.

    Here’s a look at your National Forecast:

    See you on Fox and Friends!  Have a wonderful weekend.

  • Strong storms for the Midwest and Southwest

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Happy Wednesday everyone.  Can you believe we’re wrapping up the month of July?   It seems like just yesterday the kids were getting out of school!

    Weatherwise, the Northeast is enjoying some cooler temperatures this week.  We’ll feel a little warmer heading into the weekend with an increase in the rain chances.

    The heat and humidity over the Central and Southern Plains remains dangerous today, but cooler and drier conditions spread into the Plains Thursday.

    Scattered strong storms are possible across the Midwest again today and tomorrow:

    Localized flash flooding is also a threat.

    Speaking of flooding, flood watches remain posted across the West and Southwest as flash flooding remains a concern through the end of the week.

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

  • Strong storms could delay travel in the Northeast

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.  Hope you had a wonderful weekend.  We’re starting this Monday off with some stormy weather across the Mid Atlantic and Northeast.

    Some storms could turn severe while flash flooding will also be a risk.

    Meanwhile, the severe weather threat will shift to the upper Midwest and Great Lakes tomorrow and Wednesday.

    Cooler temperatures are the story for the Northeast back through the Great Lakes while the summertime heat continues across the Central U.S.   

    We’re also watching the threat for showers and thunderstorms for the Southwest with higher than average fire danger over the Northwest.

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

  • Severe storms for the Midwest and Heat grips much of the U.S.

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Happy Friday everyone!  I hope you have a great weekend planned.  It is going to be hot hot hot for much of the country!

    We could see several rounds of strong to severe thunderstorms from the northern Plains through the  upper Midwest into the Great Lakes.

    Damaging winds, large hail, and flooding will be the primary threats with these storms. Meanwhile, Excessive heat will grip the central Plains into the Midatlantic with heat indices approaching 105 to 110 degrees.

    Heat watches and warnings are posted for millions of people, so please be careful and stay cool.

    And a warning if you live in the southwest –  more monsoonal moisture will be pulled into the region with the risk of heavy rain and flash flooding.

    If you’re up with us this morning, we will be enjoying live music from O Town on the plaza for our summer concert series!  Forecast looks good, but it’s going to be muggy…

    See you on Fox and Friends!
