  • Weekend weather and why its important to prepare before the storm

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    I’m gearing up for a busy week of Freddy promotion, and I wanted to pass along an Op Ed that I wrote for Foxnews.com about why it’s important to prepare now while the weather is quiet for hurricane season.   This is why I continue to write children’s books to get kids talking about how they can get their home weather ready with my friend Freddy!  Let me know what you think.  You can click on the article HERE

    Meanwhile, taking a look outside this weekend, hot temperatures return to the Northern and Central US with heat advisories up for several states.

    A storm system moving through the eastern U.S. will bring showers and thunderstorms to the Ohio Valley and Mid-Atlantic:

    Some of the storms could product heavy rain and flash flooding. Strong to severe storms will be a risk tomorrow across portions of the Midwest, the Ohio and TN Valleys with mainly hail and damaging winds.

    A system in the Northwest will bring the risk for flooding, but will help firefighters battles wildfires in the area.

    Have a great weekend everyone.  I’ll be on Fox and Friends in the 8am hour on Monday with some Freddy Fans to kick off the new book, and I hope you’ll join us!

  • Tuesday weather, and here comes Freddy!

    Hi everyone!

    I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July.   We had a great trip back to Canada last week, and a wonderful holiday weekend.

    A quick peak at the Nation’s weather picture, there’s a few strong storms are possible today across the Ohio River Valley along a cold front.  Hail and damaging wind gusts are the primary concerns.

    Unfortunately, there’s more rain from Texas through Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, and into Illinois where flash flooding is possible.

    If only we could get some of that moisture into the Southwest and California!

    Temperatures from the Central Plains to the Midwest will be unseasonable cool today.

    Afternoon highs will be 10 to 25 degrees below average, and will slowly moderate to near average by Friday.

    And, I’m excited to announce that next week my new Freddy the Frogcaster book comes out!  In this book, Freddy helps his town prepare in advance of a hurricane.    Did you know Freddy is also now a Weather Ready Nation Ambassador for NOAA?     I’m proud to say he is helping “make the nation more ready, responsive, and resilient against extreme weather”   I’m very excited to share this new adventure with kids, parents and teachers.  Thank YOU for all your support on the blog!

    We’re going to be driving back to New York tomorrow, but wanted to wish you all a Happy 4th!

    One of my favorite family summer vacations was to the Kennedy Space Center.  I knew back then that I could be anything that I dreamed of living here.  #ProudAmerican

    Have a wonderful weekend, my friends.
