  • 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.

    If you’d like more info you can head HERE

    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…

  • A quieter weather pattern coming!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone!

    Happy Wednesday.   There is some good news ahead for those who are “weather weary”.   We’ve got a system moving across the central U.S is bringing snow across the Plains through the great lakes:

    Winter weather advisories are up from south Dakota through Minnesota and Wisconsin.

    The storm will then move across the Northeast bringing some rain, snow and sleet through Thursday:

    The West will begin to dry out with a quieter weather pattern setting up for much of the country.

    Here’s a look at your daytime highs today:

    As we get into the weekend, things will be a little less active across the country in terms of big winter storms.  I’ll take it!

    Have a great day all.  See you on Fox and Friends!

  • Deadly tornadoes, a Nor'Easter, and more storms for the West

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hello everyone.  Hope you’re all doing well — We had a devastating weekend across the South with over two dozen tornadoes, 19 deaths and incredible damage across 5 states.

    A lot of people are asking if it’s odd that we are seeing this amount of severe weather in January, but it does happen.  We’ve had unseasonably mild weather across the east coast, a very strong jet stream bringing the upper level winds and a lot of abundant moisture from the Gulf.   The pictures are heartbreaking, and your prayers are needed for those who are literally picking up the pieces this morning.

    Watching our Nor’easter today which will bring the threat for flooding rain, an icy mix, heavy snow and strong winds to much of the Eastern Seaboard.

    A  prolonged period of strong winds will bring  in coastal flooding for the Mid-Atlantic  up into New England.

    Meanwhile, unsettled weather continues across the West with heavy rain for California and big snow for the Sierra.

    Flooding, mudslides, rockslides and avalanche danger will continue to be an ongoing concern.

    A lot going on– I hope you will tune into Fox and Friends to keep up to date with the latest.  Have a safe Monday everyone!

  • Several storms hit the West, a rainy Inauguration Friday

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone!

    I hope you will tune into Fox and Friends this morning — we have a wonderful young man named Charlie Warren that will be doing weather with me.  He’s from Liberty, North Carolina and became a big TV star a couple of weeks ago when he was featured on our Fox affiliate.  You will love him!

    We will have plenty to talk about in the weather department this week.   More rain is in the forecast along a frontal boundary draped from the Northeast back into the Southern Plains.

    The south could see flooding issues and scattered thunderstorms through the week.  Meanwhile, temperatures ahead of the front will be warmer than average:

    While cooler temperatures stay in place behind the boundary.  Our big story heading into the weekend is more strong storms from the Pacific crashing into the west bringing heavy rain and big snow totals in the mountains.

    Flooding, rockslides, mudslides and avalanche danger will once again be elevated.

    And temperatures will be warm for Washington D.C. with rain in the forecast for the Inauguration on Friday in the afternoon.

    It could be a lot worse though – here are the weather extremes going back in history for Inauguration Day:

    That’s all for now.  I’m heading to D.C. with the gang this week, so be sure to tune in!
