  • Green Screen fun with Saint Stephen of Hungary School

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    Weather is fairly quiet this week, however there’s definitely storms brewing for the long Memorial Day weekend.  I’ll have a full update tomorrow.

    For now, I had some visitors today from Saint Stephen of Hungary School here in NYC.  I definitely think we’ve got some future broadcast meteorologists in this group.

    Talk to you tomorrow!

  • Severe weather outbreak expected this weekend and #KellyFile!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi All!  Hope you had a great week.  Plenty of weather news to get to.  Another weekend of severe weather is in store for the Plain States:

    Large hail, damaging winds and tornadoes will be likely.   Here’s the official outlook from the Storm Prediction Center:

    Meanwhile, heavy rain will also be a concern especially for Oklahoma and Texas where feet of rain has fallen over the last few weeks!

    Tomorrow the strong to severe storms will move into the Upper MS Valley but storms will be weakening.  On the Northern edge of the system winds will howl across the Northern Plains with much cooler air moving in bringing several inches of snow!

    Everyone should be on alert if you live in these areas.

    Meanwhile, Megyn Kelly had me on her show The Kelly File last night to talk about what is happening to civility in our country.  Let me know what you think (and we also talk about the time we spent the night together!  LOL!)

    You can watch it HERE

    Have a great weekend everyone

  • 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 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.

  • Alert: Strong to severe storms this weekend

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hello everyone!

    I had an AMAZING time in D.C. last week.   I was the keynote speaker for the Women on the Move luncheon for the DC chapter of the National MS Society.  I also got to meet some of my colleagues in our DC offices, and hang out with one of my good friends Shannon Bream who was an amazing hostess.  You can check out all the pictures (There are a lot of them!) on my Facebook, Instagram and Twitter page!

    Unfortunately, we have the threat for some strong storms this weekend from Texas through the Central Plains.  Large hail, damaging winds, and a few tornadoes are possible.

    Tomorrow the threat shifts to the Middle and Lower Mississippi River Valley, with an increased threat for large hail, damaging winds and tornadoes, especially across Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi.

    Rain will continue to the heavy at time this weekend along the Gulf Coast.  Areas have seen 6-10″ of rain in the past week, and any additional rain will increase the flooding threat.

    It’s cold enough for some spring snow across the Rockies as well!

    I hope you all have a fun weekend.  It is BEAUTIFUL here in New York City.  I may have to get out and “investigate” the weather :)
