  • Wildfires, TD4 and the #PDC button?

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone

    Once again, sorry about the Blog silence last week.  We had some technical issues that couldn’t get resolved right away, but we’re back online.

    In weather news, a front moving through the central U.S. will bring strong to severe storms to the Central Plains and Midwest today.

    Large hail, damaging winds, and a few tornadoes are possible.  Tomorrow the threat shifts to the Ohio River Valley and Great Lakes.

    Fire conditions remain elevated across much of the West today.

    Low humidity, gusty winds, and hot temperatures continue through midweek.  We do have a trough that will push in on Friday which will lower temperatures, but the area remains moisture starved for the foreseeable future.

    And it remains incredibly hot across the Southwest with excessive Heat Warnings remaining in effect.

    Meanwhile, our 4th tropical depression has formed in the Atlantic and will approach the Lesser Antilles in 7 days or so.  Something we’ll have to watch as we are heading into peak hurricane season.

    And incase you missed it yesterday, my friend Gretchen Carlson and I found out there’s a “Profanity Delayed Control Button” in our control room.  Check it out HERE


  • Blog issues

    Hi All!

    I had some issues with the Blog over the last few day.  It’s up and running now, and I promise to have a new post up shortly.  Sorry for the inconvenience!


  • Cooking with Friends: Pasta Barnych

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    We’ve got a pretty quiet weekend in weather.  It’s still very hot over the southern plains and lower Mississippi Valley, while a cool down moves into the Western U.S.

    Heavy rain will continue in Florida, and we’ll have to watch the Eastern Atlantic for possible tropical development courtesy of a stalled front that could spawn a system off the coast later this week.

    In other news, my husband and I were invited on Fox and Friends “Cooking with friends” segment last week.  Sean was so nervous, but I he did so well, I wanted to share it with all of you:

    And by the way, the recipe is marvelous, and you can find it here:

    Have a great weekend everyone!


  • #KellyFile: Ann Romney's book about Multiple Sclerosis

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi All

    I know this is a weather blog, and it’s hardly been about weather lately!   Thanks for allowing me to post other things I’ve been doing.

    I did a segment with Megyn Kelly last night about a mean reporter with Media Matters that made fun of a book Ann Romney was writing about living with MS.  As you all know, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis 10 years ago and am very open about the illness.  So you can imagine how upset I was when someone made jokes about Mrs. Romney writing about her experience.  Here’s the clip if you have a moment to take a look:

    Meanwhile, the WEATHER!

    The heat is going to break tonight for the Midwest, Ohio Valley and Northeast.  We’ll still be sticky across the South and Southeast.

    A few isolated severe storms are possible across the Mid-Atlantic, interior Northeast, and Central Plains, with damaging winds and some hail as the primary threats.

    Flash flooding is also possible with heavy downpours from eastern Colorado into the Central Plains.

    Oh, by the way — on Thursday my husband Sean and I will be “Cooking with Friends” on Fox and Friends, so hope you can tune in to see one of his famous Firehouse dishes!
