  • 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!

  • Honoring Weather Woman Shirley Clark!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hi everyone!

    I just had to post these pictures that Samantha Sager sent me of her mom Shirley Clark.  Shirley became the very first on-air weather woman at the ABC Affiliate WZZM TV Channel 13 in Grand Rapids Michigan.  According to Samantha, Shirley went in to apply for a receptionist job, and ended up with her own daytime talk show and became the station’s first female weather girl – circa 1963!!  She was a part of broadcast history, AND raised three wonderful kids at the SAME TIME!  You’re my hero, Shirley!

    Of course, Shirley only watches Fox News Channel now!  :)   And, Shirley, you are always welcome to come and do weather with me here in NYC! xo

    Hi everyone

    Sorry for letting the blog go over the last few days.  Freddy has taken up a lot of my time.  But things are settling down now.  I promise to be back at it this weekend…

    By the way, Freddy will be making his Prime Time debut on the Kelly File Friday night, so hope you’ll tune in!
