  • Freddy goes on the road to Alexandria, Virginia!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Happy Friday, friends!

    Wanted to share some pictures of my adventures yesterday in Alexandria, Virginia!  I visited Immanuel Lutheran School and read Freddy the Frogcaster and the Big Blizzard to the AMAZING children and staff who made me feel right at home.

    We then hopped across the river and went into D.C. to see my friend Jennifer Wishon of CBN News.  That was such great fun also.

    There was  plenty to talk about especially with all of this cold weather and snow in the forecast!

    I’ll post a full forecast update shortly.  Have a great weekend everyone!

  • Remembering and being grateful.

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Today we honor and express our deep gratitude to all of our Veterans.

    My mom sent me these pictures of my dad a few months ago.  She reminded me how honored he was to serve in the United States Air force.   He joined in Toledo Ohio, trained in Biloxi Mississippi and was stationed in Taiwan and Germany.   I’m proud of him and miss him.

    “In Flanders Fields” was written by A Canadian physician Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae.  He wrote it after the funeral of a friend and fellow solider on May 3, 1915.  It is simply one of the most beautiful and powerful poems I have ever read.

    In Flanders fields the poppies grow,
    Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
    Scarce heard amid the guns below.

    We are the Dead. Short days ago
    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie
    In Flanders fields.

    Take up our quarrel with the foe:
    To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
    In Flanders fields.

    To all of you who served, we Thank you.  Today and every day.

  • First snow of the season, Election weather, Halloween fun and extra sleep!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi All!

    It’s been a very busy week.  Let’s get to it!

    We’ve got storms on both coasts that will bring rain wind and accumulating snow.  Over a foot of snow has already fallen across the mountains of North Carolina!   Many cities had their earliest snowfall with record breaking low temperatures.

    Wind chills will be in the 20s and 30s overnight with freeze warnings in effect for many southern states.

    A coastal storm off the Northeast will bring strong winds, rain and heavy snow for parts of New England through tomorrow.

    Meanwhile,  across the west, much needed rain and mountain snow will help the drought stricken state of California.

    This storm will be the weather maker next week as it makes its way across the central u.s.

    A look ahead to election day Tuesday, a storm system will bring rain and thunderstorms from the Lower Great Lakes down into Texas.  We’re not looking at severe weather that day, but isolated thunderstorms could delay voters out to the polls. Clouds, rain and drizzle will be in the forecast for the West as well  from Northern California to Washington state.

    And don’t forget to set your clocks back an hour tonight for some extra zzzzzzzzz’s!

    In other news, here’s some fun pictures of my little superheros yesterday, and we had so much fun last week on Fox and Friends weekend dressed up as the Flintstones!

  • Fun with Fox and Friends Weekend!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    I had a great time on Fox and Friends Weekend this morning.  Here are some of the pictures with my amazing new friends!  (Many of whom are Freddy the Frogcaster fans!)

    Thanks to Chef Rodney Murillo, Culinary Director of Davio’s here in Manhattan for coming to talk about yummy pumpkin dishes!

    Tomorrow we’ll be wearing some Halloween costumes, so that should make things interesting…

    Taking a look at the weather maps, we have a quiet weekend of weather for much of the country.   The Pacific Northwest will be unsettled for the next few days as a storm off the Pacific brings several rounds of rain wind and mountain snow.

    Well above average temperatures for the Plains and Deep south with widespread 80s and some cities in Texas and Oklahoma getting into the 90s which could set some record highs!

    And the East coast is improving as last week’s Nor’easter finally exits the coast.

    Have a great weekend everyone.  See you back early on Fox and Friends tomorrow!
