  • Shhhhhhhh! Don't tell Shannon Bream...

    I can just see Shannon Bream now when I deliver the bad news on America’s News Headquarters tomorrow:

    Next week much of the country will get a big taste of winter in terms of temperatures.  And some folks across the Northern Plains and Midwest need to be “shovel ready!”

    Here’s the deal.    We’ve got an incredibly strong extra tropical system bringing hurricane force winds and 50 foot waves across the Bering Sea.

    This was once a Super Typhoon called Nuri.  It’s now “extra tropical” (having lost all of its warm core tropical characteristics) and will influence our jet stream next week pushing VERY cold air from the Arctic down as far south as Texas.

    Records will be broken with temperatures 20-40 degrees below what they should be this time of year.

    Snow will also fall along the leading edge of this cold air Sunday into Monday.

    A narrow band of 6-12″ is possible from Montana through the Northern Plains into the Upper Midwest.

    It should be mentioned that Florida, the Southwest and California will escape the polar plunge this time around!

    I broke down and brought up all our winter clothes from the basement this morning.   I just hope its not a harbinger of things to come…

    Hi All!

    It’s been a very busy week.  Let’s get to it!

    We’ve got storms on both coasts that will bring rain wind and accumulating snow.  Over a foot of snow has already fallen across the mountains of North Carolina!   Many cities had their earliest snowfall with record breaking low temperatures.

    Wind chills will be in the 20s and 30s overnight with freeze warnings in effect for many southern states.

    A coastal storm off the Northeast will bring strong winds, rain and heavy snow for parts of New England through tomorrow.

    Meanwhile,  across the west, much needed rain and mountain snow will help the drought stricken state of California.

    This storm will be the weather maker next week as it makes its way across the central u.s.

    A look ahead to election day Tuesday, a storm system will bring rain and thunderstorms from the Lower Great Lakes down into Texas.  We’re not looking at severe weather that day, but isolated thunderstorms could delay voters out to the polls. Clouds, rain and drizzle will be in the forecast for the West as well  from Northern California to Washington state.

    And don’t forget to set your clocks back an hour tonight for some extra zzzzzzzzz’s!

    In other news, here’s some fun pictures of my little superheros yesterday, and we had so much fun last week on Fox and Friends weekend dressed up as the Flintstones!
