  • Fox Fan Weekend fun!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    I’m going to be off on vacation for the rest of the week and part of next week.  I’m going to try and schedule some OPEN BLOGS (remember those?) so you guys can chat with one another if you like, and maybe update me on your forecast since I am going to take a break from the weather maps for a little while.   I’m excited to have some family fun this 4th of July weekend.  I hope you all have a safe and enjoyable holiday.

    Incase you missed some of the pictures from #Foxfanweekend at the Yankees game,you can check them out at this LINK We had so much fun with our Number One Fans!  You guys are the BEST.

    Here’s one of the pics:

    Take care everyone.  Happy 4th of July.   Let me know what you’re up to!

  • A mild weekend for many and Christmas party pictures!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning all!

    I have to share some pictures from Thursday night’s White House Christmas Party.  My sweet friend Shannon Bream asked me to be her date (how lucky am I?!)

    I travelled to D.C. for a once in a lifetime event.  Every room was decorated beautifully with gorgeous Christmas trees everywhere.

    There were many of our Fox Family there, and it was such a happy, fun night.   I felt very fortunate to be a part of such a special event.

    You can check out more pictures on my Facebook page!

    And now, it’s back to reality, and we have some weather to discuss:

    There’s a strong storm across the Southern Rockies that will move into the Central Plains and Mid-Mississippi Valley this weekend bringing heavy rain, snow and a chance of severe storms.

    Heavy rain is possible from the Southern Plains Lower Mississippi Valley up into the Upper Mississippi Valley and Great Lakes.  More heavy rain will cause flooding concerns for the Pacific Northwest and Northern California as a new storm system moves in while heavy snow will pile up over the Cascades and Sierra Range.

    Meanwhile, two thirds of the country will be enjoying temperatures up to 30 degrees above average this weekend feeling more like fall than winter.

    What do you guys think of this warm weather?  Do you love it or are you all wishing for a white Christmas?

    Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

  • Never Forget...

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone

    Another anniversary is upon us.  I wanted to post a few photos in honor of some of the men we lost 14 years ago.  The first picture was taken for a Vanity Fair article written by the late David Halberstam called “Of Fire and Men”.  This was my husband Sean’s firehouse 40/35 on the Upper West Side.  Sean is in the far right hand corner.

    The article was then turned into a book called Firehouse which is a beautiful testament to the 12 brave, good men who gave up their lives saving others that day.

    We will never forget.  God Bless the families of those who we lost September 11th, 2001.

    Hi All!

    I’m off until Tuesday.  Hope you all have a great weekend.

    Here’s Matthew’s 1st day of school in 1st grade.  He did great.  Mom had to wipe away a few tears.

  • 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
