  • The south heats up this week!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Happy Sunday, everyone!

    Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Weather for the most part is quiet this week with a few trouble spots.  There’s a risk for strong to severe storms across the Northern and Central Plains.  Locally heavy rain along with some hail and damaging wind will be possible.  Keep an eye to the sky and an ear to your local weather reports if you live in the yellow shaded zone:

    Heat and humidity returns for the Southeast this week.  Take a look at these temperatures!  With the heat index, it’s going to feel well over 100 degrees for a few days this week.

    Scattered showers and thunderstorms will pop up from Texas to the Tennessee Valley and along the Gulf Coast to Florida while “monsoon” moisture will persist for the four corners.

    In the tropics, we’re watching a disturbance out in the Atlantic, but conditions are not favorable for development – right now.

    Have a relaxing rest of your weekend.  I’ll check back in on Tuesday!

  • Jenna Lee's Baby Shower!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone.

    We had Jenna’s baby shower this afternoon.  Thought I would share a picture of my lovely friends and co-workers that came to celebrate.  There was a lot of love in the room for Jenna and Leif’s new little one that’s almost ready for his or her close up!   What do you guys think?  Boy or Girl?  (I think it’s a boy!)

    Have a great rest of the week.

  • Beautiful view of the "Supermoon"

    Hi everyone

    Did you see the “Supermoon” last night?  I forgot to take a picture from my backyard, but I found this incredible image from the NASA website.

    Happy Monday everyone!   Make it a great day.

  • Hurricane Julio moves north of Hawaii

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Happy Saturday everyone!  My family was back at the beach yesterday, and it’s going to be a wonderful weekend in you live in the Northeast.  Pleasant temperatures and plenty of sunshine.  Get out and enjoy it.

    In other weather news,  Tropical Storm Iselle moved into Hawaii last week.  Thankfully, Hurricane Julio is now forecast to remain well north of the Island Chain keeping the worst of the storm offshore.

    Across the U.S., Showers and thunderstorms will pop up over the Plains with a risk for large hail and damaging winds for Nebraska and Kansas.

    The south will remain unsettled while much of the west should be dry.  The Northwest is still very warm and dry with a high fire threat through the weekend.  We have so many active fires burning over this region.

    I hope you’re all doing great.   Have a wonderful weekend.

  • Hurricane Iselle moves towards Hawaii and Drew Barrymore?

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone

    The big weather story today will be Hurricane Iselle making landfall over the Big Island as a minimal hurricane.  Hurricane warnings and Tropical Storm Warnings are up with rainfall of 5-8 inches possible.  Some isolated areas could see over a foot of rain with wind gusts possible of over 75 mph.

    Right behind Iselle is Hurricane Julio.  This storm is expected to pass near or just north of the Islands Saturday night as a weakening system.

    And in fun news, look at the picture my brother found of me for #ThrowbackThursday!  I like to think I knew at an early age I was going to be a broadcaster (and would need serious help with my hair!)  Someone mentioned I look like Drew Barrymore in E.T!  ;)

    Have a great weekend everyone!  I’ll talk to you Saturday.
