  • A fairly quiet start to the workweek...

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.  Hope you had a great Thanksgiving. We’ve got a pretty quiet start to the week as people get back to work after a nice long weekend.

    Temperatures are 20-30 degrees above average for the Plain states, and the really cold air remains to the north of us for the week.

    Another stormy start to the workweek for the West with heavy rain and snow for the Northwest and California.

    Heavy snow will pile up over the Sierra and the Cascade range.

    Much of the country will remain quiet through the week if you have travel plans.

    See you on Fox and Friends!


  • Travel Weather this weekend

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone!   Happy Friday.  We made it.

    We are getting into the busiest travel week of the year, so let’s take a look at the forecast over the next week:

    Heavier snow will fall across the Central and Northern Rockies today with a scattered mix of rain and snow falling across the Northern Plains toward the Midwest and Great Lakes.

    This system will move into the Northeast tomorrow causing possible travel headaches for folks getting a head start on Thanksgiving week:

    A look ahead from Monday through midweek next week:

    We’ve got a relatively quiet pattern setting up.  The Northwest will remain unsettled with more rain and snow.  Relatively light snow will be possible across the Great Lakes into New England with a couple of fast moving few clipper systems, especially in lake-effect snow regions downwind of the Great Lakes.  Temperatures will be below average across the Northeast on Wednesday into Thursday for the Thanksgiving parade with warmer than average conditions for the Southwest.

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


  • Watching the West and Travel weather

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.

    As we get closer to Thanksgiving we’re watching a couple of storms on the horizon that may cause travel delays.

    Rain and snow continues across the Northwest with heavier rain and snow moving into Northern California.

    Winter Storm Warnings will be in effect.

    Rain and scattered storms will stretch from the Great Lakes back through the Mississippi River Valley and into North Texas

    This will bring a messy commute to the Northeast tomorrow.

    A more significant storm will move into the Midwest and Northeast Friday through the weekend.  Stay tuned!

    See you on Fox and Friends!


  • Messy travel for the Northeast, Stronger storm across the West

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.   Happy Monday!  Hope you all had a great weekend.

    Temperatures are starting to moderate a little bit across the Northeast today after a bitter cold weekend.

    We do have a messy mix of rain and snow that will move out through the day…

    A stronger storm pushing in over the West will bring very heavy rain, feet of snow and strong winds to the region over the next few days:

    Here’s a look at some rain/snow totals:

    And we’re going to be watching a storm over the Midwest that could bring some rough travel across the Northeast late week and into the weekend.  Stay tuned.

    Have a wonderful day.  See you on Fox and Friends!


  • Winter is coming!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone.  Happy Tuesday!  The big weather headline this week will be the push of cold air that will finally make its way across the country so get ready!

    Right now, the  Central Rockies and west-central Plains will see more snow showers and a rain-snow mix.

    Temperatures across these regions will also be 15-25 degrees below average.

    A new system will move into the Northwest and Northern California beginning late Tuesday into Wednesday.

    And later this week into the weekend a much colder airmass will over the Midwest, Great Lakes, then Northeast – so get ready!

    Here’s a peek at the rest of today’s forecast:

    See you on Fox and Friends!
