  • Storms on both coasts bring big impacts

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.  There’s a whole lot going on today, so let’s get to it!

    A coastal storm is strengthening right now bringing significant impacts from the Midatlantic to New England through the day:

    We had record breaking warmth yesterday in the Northeast, and now temperatures are dropping by 20-30 degrees!

    Heavy snow and dangerous travel will impact the major cities along the 1-95 corridor from Philly to New York up into Boston through the day.

    Winter storm warnings are posted where 6-10 inches of snow will pile up with some areas receiving more than a foot depending on where the heaviest bands set up.

    Blizzard warnings are in effect for parts of long Island and coastal New England where winds will gust upwards of 35 miles per hour for several hours.  Travel will be difficult if not impossible.

    Meanwhile, a strong storm off the Pacific will bring heavy rain and mountain snow to the region.

    Winter storm warnings and flood watches and warnings are in place down into Central California up into Washington state:

    We’ll keep you up to date through the day.  I hope you will tune in to Fox and Friends this morning and Fox and Friends First.  Be safe all!

  • Big winter storm moves into the Northeast

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    We had a terrible tornado outbreak yesterday across Louisiana and Mississippi including the city of New Orleans.

    A state of emergency is in place with incredible destruction from at least 7 tornadoes reported. Today is a quieter day in terms of severe weather, but we’re now watching a coastal storm that will impact the Northeast starting tonight.

    The system will form overnight off the coast and bring significant impacts from the MidAtlantic to New England through much of  Thursday.  Winter storm warnings are up for millions of people from Philadelphia to Boston:

    The potential exists for heavy snow and dangerous travel conditions including the major interstate 95 cities.  We are forecasting a wide swath of 6-10 inches for millions of people.

    The worst of the snow will be during tomorrow’s rush hour.  Be prepared for delays, cancellations and difficult if not impossible travel.

    Also want to make mention that the Northeast isn’t the only spot receiving big snow.  The West will get pounded again with inches of rain and feet of snow over the next few days:

    Be safe everyone!  I’ll have another update tomorrow morning.  See you on Fox and Friends…

  • Happy Monday!

    Good morning everyone

    Sorry it’s been awhile – we had a busy week with Groundhog Day and then it was Houston for the Superbowl!   What a game last night.  I think a lot of us will be putting our heads down and trying to nap a bit on our desks this afternoon.   Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

    It’s hard to believe it’s February already.   We’ve got another big round of heavy rain and mountain snow across the West over the next few days.

    Several inches of rain will fall along the coast and feet of snow will pile up in the mountains.

    A new storm will bring rain and thunderstorms for the eastern U.S. tomorrow.  We could see a little bit of severe weather with this system for the southeast:

    And near record warmth will be the story across parts of the Plains and Mid atlantic midweek:

    Have a great day everyone!  Hope you will tune in for Fox and Friends this morning to see the highlights of our Houston Superbowl trip…

  • Quiet weather continues, and a big honor this week!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.   Hope you had a great weekend.  Weather has been pretty tame, and will remain fairly quiet this week.  We do have a series of weak storms pushing across the Midwest, Great Lakes and Northeast.

    Snow will be relatively light except areas east of the Great Lakes and in parts of the Appalachians.

    Meanwhile,  the Northwest will see some light rain and snow to begin the week…

    Here’s a peek at things Nationally:

    And finally, I have an exciting week this week.  I am being honored as this year’s Meteorology Hall of Fame Inductee in Punxsutawney Pennsylvania!

    We’re taking the whole family this week to visit this world famous home of Punxsutawney Phil. The ceremony is Wednesday, and we will be on location for Groundhog Day on Thursday.

    Hope you will tune in and join me on Fox and Friends to see all the fun and festivities.  Have a wonderful week everyone!

  • Quieter weather for the weekend...

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.  Happy Friday!  I’ve got some pretty good weather news heading into the weekend with much calmer weather for much of the country — just a couple of exceptions:

    Lake effect snow will still be an issue for areas east of Erie and Ontario.

    Across the west, offshore winds will gust up to 70 mphs bringing the wildfire danger risk up.

    Colder temperatures will move in for much of the country but we’re not talking about an arctic outbreak.

    Here’s a look at your Friday headlines:

    Have a great weekend everyone!  See you on Fox and Friends…
