  • Monday Monday!

    Hi All

    It’s been such a busy day being back at work with severe storms and our first tropical storm of the season over the weekend.  It feels like Monday!  I’ll have a longer post later– but thought I would do an OPEN BLOG for now.  Go for it!

  • Severe weather, and our first tropical storm of the season?

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi All!

    Hope your week is going well.   I’m going to be taking some vacation time this week and weekend, so Happy Mother’s Day to all you Moms out there, and I will be back Monday.

    For now, we have some weather going on…

    Severe thunderstorms and flash flooding will be possible across portions of the Southern Plains:

    A front stretched from the Ohio Valley down into the Mid Atlantic will bring the threat for showers and thunderstorms through Wednesday.

    You can see parts of Texas into Oklahoma could see very heavy rain and the possibility for flooding.

    Rain and high elevation snow will push into the Pacific Northwest over the next few days.

    Delightfully above average temperatures will continue across most of the central and eastern U.S…(a lot of my friends and colleagues have been high-fiving me for the warmer weather here in the Northeast :)

    Meanwhile, an area of low pressure will drift slowly Northwest across the Bahamas.  Showers and thunderstorms will affect South Florida today and tonight.

    We’ll have to watch this area for possible subtropical development later this week.  Hurricane Season doesn’t officially start until June 1st, but it’s not out of the question to see a named storm this early.  If the system does become tropical or subtropical, the name will be Ana.

    Have a wonderful week, and an amazing weekend.  Talk to you next week!

  • So many hats, so little time…and did you know this about me?

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    Sorry for the delay…I was in for Rick this morning on Fox and Friends Weekend, and will be again tomorrow if you’re up and at em early.

    Did you watch the Kentucky Derby?  I got to try on many different hats this morning, and loved every minute of it.  Check it out:

    We have excellent weather for much of the country this weekend, I am happy to report.  And many of us will get a needed warm up to almost summer-like temperatures.

    Some showers and thunderstorms will set up across the Midwest on Sunday, but we’re not looking for a severe weather outbreak which is welcome news.

    I will check in again Monday for a full update!

    Oh, and by the way,  the Foxnewsinsider did a profile on me last week!  5 things you may or not know about me.  I think you guys know me pretty well, right?  Take a look HERE

    Have a great weekend!

  • Severe threat settles down...

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi All

    We had a busy weekend of severe weather for Texas, across the Gulf Coast and now into Florida.  The threat is diminishing today, and we should have a quieter rest of the week.

    Rain and thunderstorms will continue across much of the South and Gulf Coast today.

    A few severe storms, including hail, damaging winds, and isolated tornadoes, are possible along the Gulf Coast from southeastern Louisiana to the Florida Panhandle and South Florida.

    A system moving into the Northwest will bring rain and higher-elevation snow to the region.

    You can see how we’ve got much cooler air across the Plains and parts of the West.

    Have a great rest of the week!

  • Severe storms this weekend...lip syncing and the #KellyFile

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi All!

    Sorry for the delay.  It was a busy week!   Not only do we have a lot going on in the weather, but this week I got to do a few other things outside of the Green Screen!  First, let’s get the important stuff covered:

    There were over 200 reports of severe storms yesterday including 11 tornadoes.  The weather story this weekend continues to be strong to severe storms on the move from the Eastern Gulf States into the Southern Atlantic Coast:

    The greatest risk of hail, damaging winds and tornadoes is across southern Kentucky and Northern Tennessee, but the rest of the region needs to be on alert.

    Tomorrow, a new system will bring another round of severe thunderstorms across the Southern Plains and Gulf Coast States with this storm pushing eastward over the same regions Monday and Tuesday.  It’s even cold enough for snow over the Western mountain ranges:

    We’ll keep you covered all weekend with the latest storm watches and warnings.

    Meanwhile, earlier this week I got to do some fun stuff!

    Gretchen Carlson invited me on her show on Thursday as part of her “My Friends at Fox” segment.  She asked me to reveal something people might find surprising about me, so I shared my AWARD WINNING (lol) talents as a lip syncer in High School!  Here’s a picture from way way way back then:

    I performed “I’m So Excited” by the Pointer Sisters.  I wish I had video, but due to copyright laws, we can’t put it on the internet or on social media, so here’s a “screen grab” ;)

    And last night Megyn Kelly had me on her show the Kelly File to comment on trending news stories.  One of them was a story about how college students have no clue who Ronald Reagan is.  Don’t believe me?  Check it out. It’s jaw-dropping!

    So that’s the latest from here.  Be safe if you live in the storm warned regions, and I’ll post again on Monday.
