  • Severe storms for the Central U.S, extreme heat for the Southwest

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.  Happy Thursday.  Hope your week is going well.  We’ve got a few weather stories we are following today:

    Showers and thunderstorms will be the story across the Midwest, Plains into the Mississippi and TN Valleys.

    Some of these storms could turn severe with the threat of large hail, damaging winds and tornadoes.

    Excessive and potentially dangerous heat is expected over parts of California into the Southwest this weekend:

    Temperatures will be into the 90s and 100’s for several days.

    Warm temperatures will be ongoing for the central and southern U.S. while cooler temperatures are expected over the MidAtlantic and Northeast.

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

  • A warm up (finally!) for the Northeast

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.  Hope you’re having a great week.  I’ve got some great news if you live across the Northeast.  Finally, a break in the weather pattern will bring some much needed warm temperatures and drier conditions as we head into the weekend.

    We’ve still got the chance for heavy rain and local flooding over parts of Florida and the Southeast.

    This is ultimately a good news situation as this area has been dry and into a drought for the last few months.

    Meanwhile, strong to severe thunderstorms are possible from west Texas to the central and southern High Plains; as well as the interior Northwest.

    And extreme heat is the story across the Southwest:

    Have a great rest of the workweek.  See you on Fox and Friends!


  • Weather from and a NEW STUDIO on Fox and Friends!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    I hope you’ll join us today on Fox and Friends!  We’re going to be debuting our brand new studio complete with curvy couch!  Very exciting.  I wish the weather was a little better, however.  We’ve got another rainy day across the Northeast down into the MidAtlantic and across the Southeast and Gulf Coast.

    A lot of moisture streaming in from the Gulf of Mexico will bring the risk of heavy rain and localized flooding so be aware of your weather situation.  The good news is the southeast and Florida are into a drought, so this will bring much needed relief.

    Here’s a look at your daytime highs today:

    Have a great Monday everyone.  See you on Fox and Friends!


  • Weekend weather!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.  Happy Friday!  We’ve got our summer concert series happening out on the Plaza here today and the weather couldn’t be nicer!  (well, I guess it could be a little warmer but we’ll take it…)

    A look ahead this weekend, we’ve got a system moving across the Northern plains and upper Midwest that could bring strong to severe thunderstorms across the area with threats of mainly hail and damaging winds.

    Heavy rain and a risk of flash flooding will persist over western Texas.

    And warmer than average temperatures will be the story across the Rockies and northern plains with a higher risk of fire danger this weekend:

    Here’s a look at your Friday forecast:

    Have a wonderful weekend everyone.  See you on Fox and Friends!


  • Unsettled weather for much of the country

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.  A lot of people are wondering where the nice weather is across the Northeast.  It’s been rainy and cooler than average for weeks now…and it appears as we head into June, the same weather pattern will hang around for the foreseeable future.   The good news is my lawn and trees are greener than ever!

    Taking a look at today’s weather:

    A series of weather systems will bring scattered showers and thunderstorms to parts of the Midatlantic up into New England, down into  southwestern Texas, the Central Plains, and the Pacific Northwest to the Intermountain West.   (In other words, a lot of wet weather in the forecast!)

    Here’s a look at the projected rainfall across the U.S through Sunday:

    Meanwhile, an elevated fire risk in the southwest continues with hot dry breezy conditions.  Here’s a peek at your forecast headlines:

    Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!  See you on Fox and Friends.
