  • #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!


  • Freddy on Fox and Friends!

    Hi everyone!

    We had a great launch day yesterday with my Freddy the Frogcaster Friends on the couch.  Here are some pictures, and the segment incase you missed it!

  • Weekend weather and why its important to prepare before the storm

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    I’m gearing up for a busy week of Freddy promotion, and I wanted to pass along an Op Ed that I wrote for about why it’s important to prepare now while the weather is quiet for hurricane season.   This is why I continue to write children’s books to get kids talking about how they can get their home weather ready with my friend Freddy!  Let me know what you think.  You can click on the article HERE

    Meanwhile, taking a look outside this weekend, hot temperatures return to the Northern and Central US with heat advisories up for several states.

    A storm system moving through the eastern U.S. will bring showers and thunderstorms to the Ohio Valley and Mid-Atlantic:

    Some of the storms could product heavy rain and flash flooding. Strong to severe storms will be a risk tomorrow across portions of the Midwest, the Ohio and TN Valleys with mainly hail and damaging winds.

    A system in the Northwest will bring the risk for flooding, but will help firefighters battles wildfires in the area.

    Have a great weekend everyone.  I’ll be on Fox and Friends in the 8am hour on Monday with some Freddy Fans to kick off the new book, and I hope you’ll join us!


  • Severe storms, First Day of Summer and Father's Day!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    We’ve got quite a bit of weather to talk about, so let’s get to that first.

    Strong to severe storms are possible across the Northern plains and Mid Mississippi valley as well as parts of the Ohio Valley through the central Appalachians

    Tomorrow we’ll watch the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes:

    And on Tuesday, the threat moves east across the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic back into the Ohio Valley:

    The first day of Summer arrived this afternoon, and the temperatures sure do agree!

    The southeast continues to bake this week:

    And Excessive heat warnings continues across the Southwest with highs 109-114, heat indices soaring to 120 degrees!

    Today is Father’s Day, and I feel so lucky to be married to Sean who takes such good care of my boys.  I must’ve done something right to have such an amazing family!

    And I’m also thinking of my own dad who gave me incredible career advice when I was very young.  He said “Janice Anne, find something you most love to do when it comes to work. It will bring you great happiness in life.”

    I know he was proud of all my accomplishments, but thankfully, he was also able to see that the most fulfilling part of my life is being a mother to his grandsons.

    I miss you, Dad. Happy Father’s Day.

    Thanks to all you wonderful Dads out there.  Hope you have a special Day.
